A Town Named War Boy
By Ross Mueller
Director Fraser Corfield
We hit Cairo like a train! … Every dirty little alley, every dusty back room bar - the pyramids are marvellous, but I could spend the rest of my days quite happily in the arms of your temptation.
Inspired by The State Library of New South Wales' jaw-dropping collection of WWI diaries and letters, and featuring a cast of Australia’s hottest emerging actors, A Town Named War Boy is the moving new play that brings our ANZAC legend to life.
A Town Named War Boy is written by award winning playwright Ross Mueller and features four amazing actors including Joshua Brennan (M.Rock - ATYP & STC, Parers War - ABC1), Simon Croker (Dead Man Walking - State Theatre), Brandon McClelland (Suddenly Last Summer - STC, ANZAC Girls - ABC1, 2015 Most Outstanding Newcomer TV Week Logie Nominee) and Edward McKenna (Actors Centre 2014).
