THE BOY CODE Comes to Tampere Työväen Teatteri This Week

The Boy Code, written by Kati Kaartinen, is a story about a family. Stunningly touching and recognizable. A lot of fun! In the play, the worlds of family members find themselves on a collision course, even though everyone is right. Why doesn't that make sense? Why is it like that, why isn't it different.

On stage, we have a frustrated and enthusiastic teenage boy looking for male models online. He is preoccupied with the boy code - expectations of what it should be like and whether he is like that. We have an exhausted and loving mom who drags food bags home, browses Tinder and tries to keep her flock on course. We have a gender-avoiding N who hasn't even figured out what he would do when he was an adult, but who miraculously knows how to communicate with his loved ones.

"It has been a joy to watch audiences see how young and middle-aged people react to different things. The dialogue and struggle for worldviews continues in the auditorium. It's best when people of different ages happen to be in the same show. I look forward to watching the show with my own teenager, "says director Olka Horila .

Boy: "Kill it the way it kill it, now! Motherfucker! No there no there! "
Mom: "Are you forced to use that language when you play?"
Boy: "It's just a game language."
Mom: "It's kind of sad to listen to that language, bitch and other motherfucker like a mother and a woman."
N: "There is no' but 'language"
