The Book of Everything
From the novel by Guus Kuijer
Adapted by Richard Tulloch
Directed by Neil Armfield
Thomas is nine and he's writing a book. His father says all important books are about God. Even so, Thomas writes down all the interesting things he sees that other people seem to ignore: tropical fish in the canal, a deluge of frogs and the Son of God popping in for a chat. He also writes down his greatest determination: When I grow up, I'm going to be happy.
Featuring the Bottombiter, the startling Miss Van Amersfoort and a beautiful girl with a leather leg, acclaimed author Guus Kuijer's magnificently humble story grabs your heart, challenges your mind and makes you laugh, no matter how old you are.
Directed by the highly acclaimed Neil Armfield, The Book of Everything will make its way to the bright lights of Broadway's New Victory Theatre in 2012.
Proudly supported by the Australian Government Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs.
