Year 12 Drama Production

The Book of Everything

Thomas is nine – nearly 10 and he’s started writing a book. His father says all important books are about God. Even so, Thomas writes down all the fascinating things he sees that other people seem to ignore; tropical fish in the canal, frogs in the letterbox, trumpeting sparrows … He also writes his greatest wish: When I grow up, I’m going to be happy.

Featuring Jesus, the Bumbiter, the witch Mrs Van Amersfoort, Aunty Pie who rides a bike – sort of and a beautiful girl with a leather leg. Guus Kuijer’s magnificently humble story grabs your heart and challenges your mind, no matter how old you are.

Set in Amsterdam in 1951, The Book of Everything lets us into an adult’s world of moral choice through a child’s brilliant, growing imagination. It is a beautiful drama, sometimes funny, sometimes sad. It’s always compelling.

My name is Eamon Clifford and I am the Publicity and Promotions Manager for our Year 12 Drama production of The Book of Everything. Over the next term I would like to introduce you to the characters and moments from our beautiful and heartfelt production. We would like to immerse you into our world, and the world and imagination of Thomas Klopper, he’s 9 – nearly 10!

Performance dates are; Wednesday 21, Thursday 22 and Friday 23 August 2019. To held in the Richard Flynn Theatre, Senior School at 7.30pm.  Tickets will go on sale closer to the date. Keep up to date with all the action through here.
