Event Details

The magical production The Book of Everything is told through the eyes of nine-year old Thomas, a little boy who dreams big and who is determined to make sense of his life and achieve his modest ambition - to be happy. Adelaide Festival Centre and Windmill Theatre are delighted to present Belvoir and Kim Carpenters’ Theatre of Image’s The Book of Everything at Her Majesty’s Theatre from 17 – 27 August.

Directed by Neil Armfield, this moving tale follows the story of a child who sees things others cannot imagine, and whose spirit and curiosity wins over those around him. Featuring the quirky and captivating characters Jesus, the angels, the Bottombiter, the startling Mrs Van Amersfoort and a beautiful girl with a leather leg, The Book of Everything is based on an original novel written by the award-winning Dutch children’s writer Guus Kuijer. It was adapted for the stage by Richard Tulloch, one of Australia’s leading writers of books, plays and television for young audiences, and the principal writer for Bananas in Pyjamas.
