Jasper Jones – Queensland Theatre
28 July - 18 August
Jasper Jones: 28 July to 18 August
Based on the novel by Craig Silvey. Adapted by Kate Mulvany
A restaging of the Melbourne Theatre Company production
Craig Silvey’s story has captured the nation’s imagination like few before it: a best-selling novel that has become a contemporary classic, a theatrical adaptation that has created three different sell-out productions, and most recently an acclaimed feature film. It’s been so successful because it completely transports us into the shoes of its teenage heroes while taking us back to a time when the nation was also coming of age. Kate Mulvany’s award-winning adaptation renders the book in all its dimensions, from the gripping whodunnit to the triumphant country cricket game. Anna Cordingley’s Helpmann Award-winning design unforgettably puts the Australian landscape (not to mention an entire country town) on stage.
