Wonder Boy – Bristol Old Vic

The fantastic Ramesh Meyyappan features in Wonder Boy – a Bristol Old Vic production, written by Ross Willis (Wolfie) and directed by the Olivier-award winning Sally Cookson (A Monster Calls).

Sonny is twelve. Living with a heightened stammer, he is finding his way in a world ruled by vicious vowels, confusing consonants, and let’s not forget the biggest beast of them all – small talk.  A comic book hero of Sonny’s own creation helps him to soar above his bleak reality – but language is power and Sonny must find a way to be heard. When cast in the school production of Hamlet by the Headteacher, he soon finds the real heroes are closer than he thinks.

Wonder Boy offers fully integrated, creative captioning for all performances, as well as signed, relaxed, audio described and socially distanced performances, and will also be available to watch online.

Runs 5th- 26 March 2022.

Online showings – 24-26 March 2022
