Boys With Cars explores issues around unchecked male privilege, female empowerment, and what constitutes consent – important subject matter to consider in these turbulent times. The show contrasts the experiences of a South Asian-Canadian high school girl trying desperately to fit in, with the life of the popular girl who seems to have everything. It’s a compelling fusion of dynamic theatre and classical Indian dance. Adapted for young audiences from Anita Majumdar’s acclaimed solo plays, The Fish Eyes Trilogy.
“Superbly written and acted, it leaves the audience breathless.” – Capital Critics’ Circle
