The Herald ★★★★
Do you remember when we used to go camping? And when you helped me make an ATM out of cardboard for my school project? Do you remember when you bought a big plane from town and showed me how to build it? Do you realise what a big impact you have had on who I am?
OLD BOY is a show about the bond between grandfathers and grandsons. It features the real relationships of men and boys in an attempt to explore the love that is shared between men in families and the legacy passed down through generations. It takes the form of three distinct duets:
- An infant and his grandfather
- A boy and his grandfather
- A man and his grandfather
OLD BOY is more than just a performance – it is a concept that travels and each time it visits a new place it is remade with the stories and memories of a whole new cast of men and boys that are from that area.
