[A] big fat, satisfying, thought-provoking, laugh-making,
tear-jerking smash hit.
Belvoir opened its 2016 Season with the sold-out smash hit Jasper Jones. The show hit a nerve and touched a lot of hearts so this summer we’re bringing back the joy and heartbreak for those who missed out and those who want to relive the magic all over again.
Charlie’s 13 and smart. Perhaps too smart. But when blamed-for-everything Jasper Jones
appears at his window one night, Charlie’s out of his depth. Jasper has stumbled upon a
terrible crime in the scrub nearby, and he knows he’s the first suspect – that goes with the
colour of his skin. He needs every ounce of Charlie’s bookish brain if the truth is to emerge
before the town turns on Jasper.
As the boys negotiate the secrets of a small town, the winds of change blow… But how do
teenage Australians solve the riddles of a changing world? You gotta get brave.
Tom Conroy, Matilda Ridgway and Guy Simon return in Anne-Louise Sarks’ gorgeous production, nominated for Best Production for Young People at the 2016 Sydney Theatre Awards.
