Selling your soul never looked so stylish.

Enter the world of currency trading, Dior suits and cocaine. Astrid is a ruthless trader at the top of her game, raking it in with the best of them. To stay on top, she’s had to tough it out with the men that dominate her industry. She hasn’t broken the glass ceiling, she’s re-modelled the entire building.

When the young and ambitious Priya applies for a junior position on the trading floor, Astrid decides to play mentor. But, in the self-serving world of the trade floor, every favour has a price.

Award-winning playwright Melissa Bubnic won the STC’s Patrick White Award in 2010 and, since then, has been carving out a distinctive writing style that is smart, risqué and very funny. In Boys Will Be Boys  she has written a no-holds-barred, biting satire on what it takes to get ahead in the world of finance. With an all-woman cast, in-your-face dialogue, filthy jokes and heartbreaking songs, Boys Will Be Boys is a merciless and unapologetic look at power.

Welcome to the trading room floor.
