Where? Playhouse Theatre, QPAC
When? 28 July – August 18
Queensland Theatre’s next production is the acclaimed adaptation of Craig Silvey’s classic Australian novel Jasper Jones, and I have two double passes to give away! Pop over to Instagram to enter.
Adapted from the novel by Kate Mulvany, Queensland Theatre Artistic Director will direct this restaging of the Melbourne Theatre Company Production for Brisbane audiences.
Described as “somewhere between Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and classic movie Stand by Me,” Jasper Jones tells the story of bookish escapist Charlie Bucktin, who lives an uneventful life in a tiny bush town in until a midnight knock on his window sets in motion a series of events that will change him and his town forever. Town outcast Jasper Jones has asked for his help, and Charlie finds himself living in one of the adventures he has read about, racing to solve the grisly crime Jasper has uncovered and clear his name.
If you want to be absolutely sure to snag a seat to this bittersweet coming-of-age mystery, you can book your tickets to Jasper Jones via Queensland Theatre’s website.
