Written by Alan Ayckbourn, The Boy Who Fell Into A Book is a fantasy adventure which takes audiences on a journey into the unknown.
Kevin is really into his new book. But unfortunately it’s time for bed and Dad won’t stop nagging him to turn out the light. Suddenly, Kevin finds himself in the thick of the action alongside his hero, the streetwise investigator Rockfist Slim.
Together they must travel through all of the books on Kevin’s bookshelf to find a way home and escape the clutches of the mysterious underworld baddie The Green Shark. Their headlong dash takes them through Grimm’s fairy tales, Kidnapped, a book of ghost stories and even Chess For Beginners… only just avoiding a family of jelly-throwing Wooblies along the way.
The Boy Who Fell Into A Book, which plays as part of the London 2012 festival, is an inventive play which emphasises the value of reading and the power of the imagination to transport the reader to other worlds.
