What's On


Fri 03 May 2024
Riverside Theatres is excited to present the smash-hit Australian play, Fourteen, based on the best-selling memoir by award-winning journalist Shannon Molloy, on stage from 3rd to 4th May 2024.

Beginning its national tour at Riverside Theatres, Parramatta, Fourteen is the inspirational true story of growing up gay in central Queensland, transformed into a powerful must-see theatre production by nationally acclaimed Shake & Stir Theatre Co.

The year is 1999 and Shannon Molloy is a year 9 student at an all-boys rugby-mad Catholic school in regional Queensland, with a secret that no one can ever find out. Shannon is gay.

Set to a nostalgic mixtape of 90s bangers from all your faves, from Shania Twain to The Spice Girls, Fourteen addresses the trials and tribulations of growing up with honesty, humour, and heart. Equal parts uplifting and heart wrenching, we follow Shannon in a year of self-discovery set amidst a backdrop of torment, bullying and betrayal – not just at the hands of his peers, but by the adults who were meant to protect him.

This moving coming-of-age memoir about adversity and tragedy is also a story of resilience, hope and hilarity – thanks to the love of a group of close-knit friends, a fiercely protective family, an extraordinary mother and... S Club 7.

Featuring an impressive ensemble cast, Conor Leach (Melbourne Theatre Company’s SLAP.BANG.KISS, Peccadillo Pictures’ Sequin in a Blue Room) reprises his “commanding performance” (ArtsHub) in the lead role.
