Ripe Theatre presents Boy Girl Wall at the Byron Community Theatre this coming Tuesday 3 July. Brisbane’s La Boîte Theatre company really excelled themselves with this show that features 25 characters, but all performed by one man, a stick of chalk and a sock puppet.

Boy Girl Wall is performed by Lucas Stibbard, Helpmann Award nominee in 2011, who jumps energetically from first to third person and between dozens of loveable and familiar characters with impeccable timing. It’s not a love story; it’s a story about love, and the physics and evolution and madness that follows!

Reviewers were enraptured with the production, with one declaring that the star of the show ‘could do standup at the Olympics for Australia – I’m sure he’d get Gold!’

Catch this extraordinary one-man play at the Byron Theatre, Community Centre on Tuesday 3 July at 7.30pm. Book on 6685 6807 or byroncentre.com.au. $25 pre-sale / $28 on the door.
