The Boy At The Edge Of The Room: Forest Forge Theatre Company
'He was not like other boys... He did not see the world through the same eyes as us'.
A boy called Tony struggles to fit in and find his place. He has a different way of looking at the world and longs to retreat to a place where he can be 'nothing more than small and far off'. Those surrounding him have little patience for his dreams, with the exception of his mother who will do anything to ensure his happiness.
When a mysterious 'dealer' offers Tony the chance to make his dream come true, his mother must face a future without him, and the audience is forced to confront an unsettling and moving ending.
The Boy at the Edge of the Room is a gothic style fairytale for adults, inspired by Lucy Clifford's 1882 story Wooden Tony. It focuses on a character who displays many of the classic traits of those on the autistic spectrum. It is a beautiful and moving examination of difference and acceptance, brought to life through song, movement and puppetry.
Not suitable for under 12s.
