Swan Chris­tian Col­lege at Fringe

Guardian Express - - GUARDIAN -

SWAN Chris­tian Col­lege’s the­atre com­pany Fence­line The­atre will per­form The

Book of Ev­ery­thing at Perth Fringe World Fes­ti­val.

The pro­duc­tion is based on the award-win­ning book of the same name by Dutch au­thor Guus Kui­jer, set in Am­s­ter­dam af­ter World War II. The Book of Ev­ery­thing

tells the story of Thomas (9) who sees things that no­body else can see and who writes ev­ery­thing into his book, in­clud­ing his wish to be happy when he grows up.

Fence­line The­atre di­rec­tor Jane Hille said the play deals with ma­ture top­ics and dark themes, in­clud­ing do­mes­tic abuse and sto­ries of re­sis­tance against the Nazis, yet man­ages to cap­ture mo­ments of magic, hu­mour and hon­esty.

Swan Chris­tian Col­lege alumni, aca­demic staff and par­ents form the cast of the pro­duc­tion.

Ms Hille said she was look­ing for­ward to the the­atre com­pany’s sec­ond ap­pear­ance at Fringe World.

“This is an im­por­tant story to be told,” she said. The Book of Ev­ery­thing

is show­ing at the Maali Mia The­atre from Fe­bru­ary 6 to 16.

Tick­ets are avail­able at www.fringe­world.com.au.
