DRIZZLE BOY
By Ryan Enniss
Directed by Daniel Evans

STRAP YOURSELF IN FOR A ROCKET RIDE.

Drizzle Boy is autistic. Drizzle Boy is poked, prodded and diagnosed by a world that wants to change him and a family who doesn’t understand him. Then, on his first day of university, he meets Juliet and suddenly everything seems possible — even his lifelong dream of building a rocket and blasting-off toward the stars!

But Drizzle Boy’s day-to-day life is harder than navigating intergalactic space travel. He’s going to need all the help he can get — that’s where you come in! You’re invited to climb aboard this wildly audacious and wonderfully affirmative rocket ride as Drizzle Boy launches out to Canberra.

Drizzle Boy was the smash-hit of Queensland Theatre’s 2023 Season, and we’re delighted to be able to introduce him to a whole new audience across the country. And, yes, in case you are wondering, Space Bear is definitely coming too!

WARNINGS:
This production contains smoke, haze, strobe, dead black outs, and dynamic sound. Some audience members may have lights shone in their eyes. 

Audio and visual warnings have been built into this production to provide audiences with sensory sensitivities time to adjust and prepare before extreme lighting and sound cues are activated. If you have audio or visual sensitivities or are concerned about the play’s content, we recommend looking through our Scene Breakdown Spoiler Sheet (please note some changes may be made to the technical structure during previews).

This production contains references and frank discussion about autism, high-level coarse and ableist language including the “R” word in a personal historical context, aural depictions of bullying, depictions of medical mistreatment, references to suicide and occasional (and forewarned) loud noises and moments of visual intensity to reflect parts of the autistic experience.
