Francis knows everything that happens behind Harrow’s walls, a prestigious all-boys’ school. Why? Because he’s a student...and (did we mention?) the only one who’s openly gay.

Those Harrow boys are just the worst, aren’t they?

Killing Mr. Barber is a one-man play set in Harrow College – an elite all-boys’ private school. It’s the sort of school that invests millions of dollars in altitude-training rooms for their rugby players.

But our hero is not your typical Harrovian (yes, they indeed call themselves that). His name is Francis, and he’s a total sweetheart. He’s also gay and angry and not always himself.

As his last few days of school approach, Francis will share a lot. The headmaster’s daughter is a lesbian. Remy Marinelli has smegma. Harry Reed might be bi?!

Yet, Francis is perhaps finding it a little too hard to say goodbye. Why doesn’t he want to leave? Why does he keep avoiding the memory of a certain Saturday night? Why is he so bad – literally so bad – at keeping secrets?

For one hour only, enter a hyper-masculine and hyper-privileged world, with Francis at the centre. Careful how you go!
