Brothers Book Club


29 Aug - 19 Sept | La Boite - Roundhouse Theatre


The Mamas Boys Collective (AUS)

A Brisbane Festival and La Boite co-production

World Premiere

Jacob wants good grades, Albert wants to be taken seriously, Denzel wants to make a difference, Fetu wants to be a champion, Rangi wants a second chance, Darius wants to be one of the boys, Luis just wants everyone to get along, and they all want to get laid...

Welcome to Brothers Book Club.

Once a month, the boys meet at Book Club to discuss, study, help (and roast) one another. These boys aren’t just best friends – they’re brothers. Everything at Book Club is awesome, but, when Rangi returns, differences surface and the world within and around Book Club begins to unravel.

Through the books they read, they learn about themselves as individuals, as men, and as a brotherhood.

Traversing theatre, hip hop, poetry, and the boys’ imaginings of classic texts, Brothers Book Club is as inspirational as it is hilarious and unflinchingly honest.
