2010 Australian Book Industry Award for Book of the Year

Hailed as an Australian To Kill a Mockingbird, Craig Silvey’s acclaimed, best-selling novel is lovingly adapted for the stage by Kate Mulvany, directed by MTC Associate Artistic Director Sam Strong.

In this great Australian epic, young Charlie is startled by fierce rapping on the window of his sleep-out late one summer night in 1965. It’s Jasper Jones, the baddest kid in Corrigan and now he’s outside Charlie’s window, begging him to come see something, something that’ll change his life.

A heart-warming coming-of-age story wrapped in a mystery, Jasper Jones recalls a long, simmering summer in which friendships are tested and illusions are lost. Now, Sam Strong transforms this tender small-town morality tale into a rich and poignant new production.

Jasper Jones is on the 2016 VCE Theatre Studies playlist.
