A Town Named War Boy

$23.99

"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 World War I diaries and letters, A Town Named War Boy explores both the events of war and the impact it has upon soldiers and their families. Written with insight, humour and sensitivity, Ross Mueller's moving play brings the ANZAC legend to life.

REVIEW: A TOWN NAMED WAR BOY

BEC CATON, AUSSIE THEATRE, 4 MAY 2015

"A Town Named War Boy is a touching commemoration to the ANZACs and a compelling piece of theatre. It was a confronting reminder of the horror of war whilst remaining an enjoyable and humorous play that showcased power of the human spirit."

REVIEW: A TOWN NAMED WAR BOY

KEVIN JACKSON'S THEATRE DIARY, 7 MAY 2015

"...not only is it a play that commemorates the Centenary of the ANZAC story with due dignity and integrity, it is a very fine piece of theatre literature that will be relevant beyond this event - the humanity of the characters drawn, and the craftsmanship of Mr Mueller, is exemplary."
