BOY OUT OF THE COUNTRY - presented by Larrikin Ensemble Theatre

There’s more to land than real estate. There’s more to family than DNA!

A family property, worthless for generations is suddenly zoned as part of a regional housing estate to accommodate an ever-increasing urban sprawl. After a seven year absence Hunter returns to find his boyhood house boarded up and his mother in a retirement home and goes in search of answers. And he starts with his brother Gordon.
Boy out of the Country is a unique drama written in Australian poetic vernacular reminiscent of Banjo Paterson. It tunes into the rhythms of the country to examine relationships and uncover the landscape. It is a play where an old Australia meets a new Australia: where a country cop comes to terms with catchment areas, where a fifth bedroom is more important than a backyard, and where new technologies have the potential to uncover old family secrets.
This production features Jane Clifton, Matt Dyktynski, Amanda La Bonte, Christopher Bunworth and Martin Blum with a musical score composed and performed live by Bang Mango Cools.
