The year is 1999 and Shannon has a secret

Following a mega sold-out season in 2022, Shake & Stir Theatre Co’s critically acclaimed adaptation of the best selling memoir by award winning journalist, Shannon Molloy, returns to QPAC this June.

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.

Fourteen is an equal-parts uplifting and heart-wrenching account of Shannon’s fourteenth year of life. 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 is a moving true story of adversity and trauma but 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

Created and adapted by nationally revered Shake & Stir Theatre Co – based on the critically acclaimed memoir by award-winning journalist and author Shannon Molloy – this production addresses the trials and tribulations of growing up with humour and heart-on-sleeve honesty, all set to a nostalgic mixtape of 90s bangers from all your faves, from Shania Twain to The Spice Girls.

So press play on your discman, lose yourself in a pumping 90s pop remix and take a technicoloured trip back to your teens. This is Fourteen.

Presented by Shake & Stir Theatre Co and QPAC
