Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | ESCAPE -

The beloved Aus­tralian novel is given a de­light­ful new stage life. Young Storm Boy lives a sim­ple, yet free life in the coastal wilds of the South Aus­tralian Coorong, comb­ing the beaches with his reclu­sive fa­ther, Hide­away Tom. Dur­ing a long sum­mer, he makes two friends who will shep­herd him from child­hood into adult­hood – the jester Finger­bone Bill, who teaches him about his coun­try; and Mr Per­ci­val, an or­phaned pel­i­can who pre­pares Storm Boy for the wider world with a poignant les­son about love, loss and let­ting go. This land­mark new pro­duc­tion of Colin Thiele’s cher­ished yet bit­ter-sweet com­ing-of-age story brings to­gether the cre­ative forces be­hind Jasper Jones and The Wider Earth. Show­ing at the Play­house from July 29 to Au­gust 17.
