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 review the best (and worst) moments of their past relationships. An award-winning comedy, 'Boys Taste Better with Nutella' uses hilarious observations and kitsch dance moves to explore relationships, self-worth and the allure of sweetened hazelnut spread. Awarded FRINGE WORLD 2019 Weekly Award for BEST THEATRE and winner of Best Production, Best Script and Best Actor at Short+Sweet 2016.
