BOY SWALLOWS UNIVERSE, QPAC PLAYHOUSE THEATRE, SATURDAY 11TH SEPTEMBER 2021

 
Boy Swallows Universe

Boy Swallows Universe is adapted from the smash hit novel inspired by Brisbane author Trent Dalton’s own childhood. It is set in the housing estates at the fringes of Brisbane during the 1980s, is the coming-of-age story of Eli Bell and his mute brother August, as they navigate a complicated environment of drugs, crime and domestic violence — while doing the normal teenage stuff like having reckless adventures.
