Description: Relive the poignant journey of Shannon Molloy's fourteenth year of life in this emotionally charged production by Shake & Stir Theatre Co. Following a hugely successful season in 2022, this critically acclaimed adaptation of Molloy's best-selling memoir returns to QPAC. Set in 1999, the play delves into Shannon's life as a year 9 student in a rugby-mad all-boys Catholic school in coastal regional Queensland. Concealing a secret that threatens to upend his world, Shannon grapples with the challenges of self-discovery amidst a backdrop of bullying, torment, and betrayal.

Fourteen is a powerful account of adversity and resilience, infused with hope, humour, and the unwavering support of loved ones. Set to a nostalgic soundtrack of 90s hits, the production captures the essence of the era, transporting audiences back to their own teenage years.
