fourteen showing at Riverside Theatres

Riverside Theatres is thrilled to announce the highly anticipated live performance of the celebrated Australian production, “Fourteen.”

Based on the powerful memoir by the acclaimed journalist Shannon Molloy. This riveting play, staged by the nationally renowned Shake & Stir Theatre Co., will grace the Riverside stage on the 3rd and 4th of May 2024 in the vibrant heart of Parramatta.

“Fourteen” is not just a play; it’s an emotional journey through the trials and triumphs of growing up gay in central Queensland.

This story, set to a soundtrack of unforgettable ’90s hits—from Shania Twain to The Spice Girls—navigates the bittersweet paths of adolescence with a blend of honesty, humour, and heart.

Follow Shannon’s journey through a year of self-discovery, battling bullying and betrayal, for a gripping audience experience.

Utterly captivating, heart wrenching, and witty, this adaption of Shannon Molloy’s memoir was lovingly brought

The production features an impressive ensemble cast, with Conor Leach delivering a “commanding performance” that has garnered critical acclaim. “Fourteen” celebrates resilience and the power of staying true to oneself, even in the face of adversity. Its narrative resonates with funny, sad, and incredibly true moments, making it a catalyst for conversation and potentially life-changing insights.

We invite you to be part of this unforgettable experience.

This play not only promises a perfect night at the theatre! Also offers a profoundly moving and witty adaptation of Molloy’s memoir that has been lovingly brought to life on stage.
