27 Nov, Time for the Good Looking Boy, The Forum (Darlington)
On tour throughout this year, Box Clever Theatre brings you an original play “Time for the Good Looking Boy” – an urban ghost story. Short listed for ‘Best Play for young people’ in 2010 by the Writers Guild of Great Britain.
“Smart, knowing and full of heart, this may be an urban ghost story but the shivers it sends up your spine are nothing to do with spooks, and everything to do with its wondrous spell.”
Picture this: you’re in love, exams are over, summer is here and the party has started. University and the big decisions lie ahead, but everything is suddenly about to change. A young man tells the story of a night to remember with consequences he’ll never forget.“Raw and Sincere”, InSuffolk Review on Time for the Good Looking Boy

‘The publicity calls this ‘an urban ghost story’ but it is not about spookiness; it is about understanding life.’
What do people think?
British Theatre Guide
‘Smart, knowing and full of heart, this may be an urban ghost story but the shivers it sends up your spine are nothing to do with spooks, and everything to do with its wondrous spell.’
‘Coming in at just over an hour, a one-man show for a target audience notorious for its short attention span might be considered overly ambitious, but such is the sharpness of Wicherek’s ear for the nuances of teen-talk and the power of Thomas’ supercharged acting, that not a single teen texted her friend for the duration of the performance. And that is the mark of success.’
