How far would you go for your best friend?

At Ross’s funeral, the wrong people are saying the wrong things. Even the music’s wrong. Determined to do “something proper, something real, something Ross would’ve wanted”, his best friends: Kenny, Sim and Blake, decide to do a runner with his ashes. They’re taking him to Ross in Scotland, to fulfil his lifelong wish of being Ross in Ross.

Our teenage heroes embark on an epic mission to honour their friendship and to make sense of what’s happened. Their need to put things right takes them on a chaotic, emotional and often darkly comic, pilgrimage north. Along the way, their unity is threatened as uneasy truths are realised. In this powerful story of loss, hope and the meaning of friendship, will our Ostrich Boys finally start to pull their heads out of the sand?

Adapted by Carl Miller and based on the much-loved book by Keith Gray, this UK premiere of Ostrich Boys is directed by the Belgrade’s multi award-winning Creative Associate, Tony Graham. This action-packed new production sees four actors play multiple roles, on a stunning set in the intimate B2 auditorium.

Contains strong language throughout. Recommended for ages 12+.

Running time: approx 1hr 20mins, no interval.
