The Boy at the Edge of Everything tells the story of 12-year-old Simon, who just longs for some space. Between music lessons, soccer, and karate (not to mention school!) he can’t find the chance to just be. Meanwhile, at the edge of the universe lives a Boy, lonely and bored. When their worlds collide via a meditation tank rocket-ship and lots and lots of fireworks, neither will ever be the same. An imaginative journey through space and time, The Boy at the Edge of Everything is a wisecracking, charming play.
The Next Stage program is a program for early career theatre professionals.
