Nicholas Hoult is making his west end debut tonight in New Boy at the Trafalgar Studios.
The play has become the fastest selling show since the studio opened five years ago with less than 200 tickets available for its month long run.
Hoult first hit our screens in the film About A Boy starring opposite Hugh Grant and later found a new set of fans in award-winning Channel 4 drama SKINS.
In his latest leading role, Hoult plays Mark, a teenager who starts the sixth form desperate to become more popular. He strikes up a friendship with new boy Barry (played by Gregg Lowe) and with it begins a rollercoaster ride of emotions and discovery.
Cast also includes Mel Giedroyc, Ciara Janson and Phil Matthews. The play runs until April 11th.
