THE BOY WHO FELL INTO A BOOK
Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 7 p.m.
By Alan Ayckbourn
Musical Adaptation and Lyrics by Paul James
Music by Cathy Shostak and Eric Angus
Ten-year-old Kevin Carter falls into his book and meets his fictional hero, tough hard-bitten Private Investigator, RockfistSlim – 220 pounds of solid muscle and now only too real. Together the gallant, incongruous pair, pursued by arch-enemy Monique, set out on the most exciting journey of their lives on a quest to save the world!
This new play reading is part of the Foundry - a series of new play readings that forge the next generation of new plays, new artists and new audiences. This next phase in First Stage's new play development both nurtures the talents of our local playwrights and artists, and looks globally for stories and the tellers of those new tales - tales that build awareness and understanding, foster empathy and promote unity.
