Due to the NSW Government’s COVID restrictions, Belvoir has made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone the upcoming season of 25A’s Son of Byblos until we are certain we can open the doors again. We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause but keep a lookout for new dates to be released.
If you are a ticket holder, we have moved your tickets to a credit on your account, ready to book new tickets when new dates are announced. Should you prefer to receive a refund, please email us and we will organise this for you.
Stay safe, we hope to be seeing you soon for a COVID-safe Son of Byblos!
Adam has everything under control. As each day passes and he knows what to expect: Casual sex when he wants it, his traditional Lebanese parents wrapped around his finger and the only person he can be his true self with, his cousin Claire, always right by his side. He has a grip on everything and is content.
Until Claire suddenly announces her engagement to a man abroad in Lebanon.
With this one decision their truce is shaken, and little by little Adam begins to lose his grip. Sex isn’t getting him high anymore and his parents start asking questions he hasn’t prepared answers to. His private world and cultural expectations finally clash and the lies that used to keep his life together won’t work for him any longer.
