A production image from 'Boy on the Roof.' An elderly man is sat down, holding a tv remote towards a TV with his right hand, and holding a ketchup bottle in his left hand. Text on the image reads 'Boy on the Roof - Full performance online access - Exclusively for schools - 18th March - 30th June 2024.'

Vamos Theatre, in a co-commission with London International Mime Festival and a co-production with New Wolsey Theatre, presents Boy on the Roof.

Vamos Theatre’s five-star production, Boy on the Roof, is now available exclusively for schools to stream online.

Created through Community Conversations across the UK, gathering people’s experiences of ADHD, loneliness, aging, hearing loss, connection and community, Vamos Theatre’s Boy on the Roof is the story of an unlikely friendship, where acceptance, understanding and love find their way to centre stage.

At no.73 Cooper St, Brian Baxter wishes his son wasn’t so irritating. Liam Baxter can’t switch off, can’t sit still, he’s disruptive at school and chaotic at home. As for Liam, he just wishes someone understood him. Three doors down, Albert keeps himself to himself, sticks to his routines. At 91, he knows what he likes and likes what he knows. But Albert misses his wife and just wishes that someone, somewhere would have time for him. When Liam and Albert’s paths cross, no one can fathom what on earth they have in common. But the boy and the man share more than they know, and what slowly grows is a friendship that both of them need, even if the rest of the world can’t see it.

Now available to view online, this wordless and extraordinary 70-minute performance - filmed live at New Wolsey Theatre - brings together the best of the UK’s mask actors to tell a compelling, funny, emotionally moving and visually delightful story.
