Run Time: approximately 90 minutes
In the middle of his over-scheduled 12-and-a-bit-year-old life, Simon Ives dreams of a place where he can just stop and be. Meanwhile, at the farthest point in the universe, The Boy at the Edge of Everything lives by himself, lonely and bored. Simon dreams of escaping his stressful life, sending him on a time-traveling adventure that instills a renewed sense of home. Younger members of the audience will relate to Simon. Krukemeyer opens an honest discussion with parents about boundaries and the true anxieties experienced by their children. When Simon is rocketed into space (through an unlikely series of events involving ‘lots and lots of fireworks’), their worlds collide and neither will ever be the same.
See The Boy at the Edge of Everything with the family to open the possibility of a discussion about boundaries and the true anxieties experienced by our children. All while laughing together and feeling your heart warm.
