Storm Boy

August 5, 2019 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

From the creative forces behind Jasper Jones and The Wider Earth brings a dramatic stage retelling of the beloved Australian novel Storm Boy. Originally created by Colin Thiele, and adapted for the stage by Tom Holloway, this play gives new life to the classic characters. Young Storm Boy lives a simple yet free life on the coastal wilds of the South Australian Coorong, combing the beaches with his reclusive father, Hideaway Tom. During a long summer, he makes two friends who will shepherd him from childhood into adulthood: the jester Fingerbone Bill, who teaches him about his country; and Mr Percival, an orphaned pelican who prepares Storm Boy for the wider world with a poignant lesson about love, loss and letting go. Presented by Queensland Theatre, with costumes by Anna Cordingley and directed by Sam Strong, this is one not to miss.
