About this event

Aggy and Frederick may be self-loathing, socially anxious and addicted to food, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With Aggy once again falling for the wrong guy and Frederick's most fulfilling connection being with his internet provider, they begin to review the best (and worst) moments of their past relationships. Using hilarious observations, kitsch dance moves and hazelnut spread, Boys Taste Better with Nutella explores coming of age, relationships and the folds in time.

Winner of Best Production, Best Script & Best Actor at Short+Sweet Festival.
"They portray a youth that religiously practices detachment" Aussie Theatre, 2016.
"Wonderful, enchanting play, which leaves you wanting to become BFFs with both characters (and give some tough love about life choices)" Scenestr, 2016.

Fringefeed reviews energised by Woodside

  • "An intimate, charming, upbeat Hi-Five show for grown-ups crossed with ten years of therapy sessions, served up so deliciously over 50 minutes." - Agent Mystery Case

  • "It gets pretty messy; there is a lot of Nutella involved and some sort of rain of chips. This is a fun and silly show with plenty of laughs to keep you interested throughout its fifty minutes." - Isolated Nation
