The 2016 smash hit returns to Belvoir for a quick season before it hits the road.

The backblocks of Western Australia. It’s 1965 and Charlie Bucktin’s thirteen and smart. But when blamed-for-everything Jasper Jones appears at his window one night, Charlie’s out of his depth. Jasper has stumbled on the body of a local girl in the scrub, and he knows he’s the first suspect – that goes with the colour of his skin. He needs every ounce of Charlie’s brains if the truth is to emerge before Jasper finds himself at the pointy end of a deep anger.

As the boys negotiate the secrets of a small town, the winds of change blow – but how do teenage Australians solve the riddles of a Grown-Up World?

Kate Mulvany’s adaptation of Craig Silvey’s award-winning novel is daggy-funny and wise. A coming-of-age story for a generation, and a nation too.

It’s clear that there’s something deeply binding about this show, and very human. It already feels like a classic. It poured out delight in 2016, and the clamour for tickets was so, well, huge, we felt we couldn’t leave it at that. – Eamon
