About Wonder Boy UK Tour

Olivier Award-winner Sally Cookson (A Monster Calls) directs the critically acclaimed Bristol Old Vic production of Wonder Boy by Ross Willis, a heart-warming and inspiring story about the power of communication.

Sonny is twelve. Living with a stammer, he’s 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.  Sonny’s only friend is Captain Chatter, a comic book hero of his own creation, but in the real world language is power and Sonny must find a way to be heard. When cast in the school production of Hamlet by the Headteacher, he finds the real heroes are closer than he thinks.

Packed with playful humour, dazzling visuals and thrilling original music this innovative production includes live creative captioning on stage throughout.

Winner of the 2023 Writers’ Guild Award for Best Play.

Please note that strong language is used throughout.

“Audience roaring with laughter and love from the first minute”
