Drama Victoria Award for Best Performance by a Theatre Company for Secondary Students
For our family treat this year MTC presents The Boy at the Edge of Everything, a funny and engaging play by award-winning Tasmanian writer Finegan Kruckemeyer, which has already had a major touring production in the US.
Simon Ives is a boy with a very busy schedule. Music lessons, sports practice, clubs, activities and homework – it’s full on! Meanwhile way out in space, another boy with nothing to do sits bored and lonely. Two kids living on opposite sides of the galaxy. It would be beyond incredible if they ever met, but one day, completely unscheduled, that’s exactly what happens. Containing a universe of sly observation and wry jokes, The Boy at the Edge of Everything is an extraterrestrial joyride for ages 8 and up.
Originally commissioned by Trusty Sidekick Theater Company, New York and Seattle Children’s Theater, Washington.
