Press play on your discman, lose yourself in a pumping ‘90s pop remix and take a technicoloured trip back to your teens.

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

Based on the best-selling memoir by award-winning journalist Shannon Molloy, 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.

Set to a nostalgic mixtape of 90s bangers from all your faves – from Shania Twain to The Spice Girls – Fourteen tackles the trials and tribulations of growing up with honesty, humour and heart. This inspirational coming-of-age story 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.
