It starts like this... He’s not going out, he isn’t feeling up to it. It ends like this... Six dead, three hurt, one boy lost forever. Following last year’s sell-out success Dead People Don’t Have Secrets, Byteback Theatre return to the Fringe with their explosive new play, Kill The Boy. Using beautiful storytelling, spoken word and physical theatre, Kill The Boy explores themes of mental health, vulnerability and extremism. 'In Byteback Theatre’s hands, suspension of disbelief poses no problem, allowing immersion and consideration of some serious issues we face in society today' **** (, 2017).
