Based on the State Library’s jaw-dropping collection of First World War diaries, photographs and letters, A Town Named War Boy brings to life the personal accounts of the young men who set sail for the far side of the world.
Some of these diaries and letters are finished, others just stop. When you read them you meet the person, see the changes in their hand-writing, feel the indentation of the pen, the smudges of changed thoughts.
Award winning playwright Ross Mueller shows his extraordinary talent in this funny and moving play that sold out in its premiere Sydney season.
Developed and presented in partnership with the State Library of NSW.
