Synopsis

Step back in time to the 80s. Gary Ablett has just signed with Geelong. Cyndi Lauper blares through the stereo. And for gifted young teenager, Jimmy Djalu, the local video arcade is the place to be over summer. His mum knows better than anyone that Jimmy is a special kid with the world at his feet, but will he ever find the courage to reach for the stars?

Astroman is playwright Albert Belz’s irresistibly funny and heart-warming tale of family and friendship, directed by MTC Associate Director Sarah Goodes (John), starring Elaine Crombie (Black Comedy) and Kamil Ellis (Macbeth), with Tony Briggs (The Sapphires) as Associate Director.
