A psychodrama for radio

Produced by Blue Trumpet for Radio 2RRR, Hard Boys, a psychodrama for radio, is a uniquely Australian story in 10 parts. Starring Johnny Boxer of the hugely successful Australian TV show, Fat Pizza, he brings the same uniquely Australian voice to this latest production. Well known to Australian audiences as the larger-than-life, chainsaw-wielding ‘Bobo’, Johnny conjures a totally new character, both instantly recognizable and totally perplexing … the original ‘hard boy’.
