Hami is a boy without a home and spends his evening at the boarder’s hostel of his single-sex, private boys’ school. While the school has its own pecking order and systemised routines; the hostel has a completely different set of rules, where Hami is king. However, when a “dayboy” who prevented Hami from having a chance of a real family arrives on the scene, the whole school is going to be turned on its head. From emerging playwright, Harrison Kennedy, comes this explosive drama of young men grappling with boyhood, brotherhood and the fragility of masculinity.

DayBoy received rave reviews after its initial two-night season as part of the University of Otago’s Lunchtime Theatre series in 2019. Arcade is proud to produce this piece at the Dunedin Fringe Festival this year.
