Australian Theatre for Young People’s
A Town Named WAR BOY   -  by Ross Mueller

A Performing Lines tour

“We hit Cairo like a train! ... Every dirty little alley, every dusty back room bar – the pyramids are marvellous, but I could spend the rest of my days quite happily in the arms of your temptation.”

Based on the State Library of NSW’s jaw-dropping collection of First World War diaries, photographs and letters, A Town Named War Boy brings to life the personal accounts of the young men that set sail for the far side of the world.

Some of these diaries and letters are finished, others just stop. When you read them you meet the person, see the changes in their hand-writing, feel the indentation of the pen, the smudges of changed thoughts.

19 & 21 April A Simple Space

Gravity & Other Myths

Seven acrobats push their physical limits without reserve; this performance is simultaneously raw, frantic and delicate. Supported by driving live percussion and presented so intimately that you can feel the heat, hear every breath, and be immersed in every moment.
