Rules of Summer

Adapted from the award-winning book by Shaun Tan

Rules of Summer // School Season

A performance like no other, Rules of Summer is an immersive, interactive, and multi-sensory puppetry work following the journey of two boys who experience the emotional journey of life, the unwritten rules of friendship, and a list of mysterious rules…

See the entire theatre space come to life and experience a sensory world of sight, taste, smell, sound and touch. What rule will you break? Will you accept or reject a tasty treat? And what consequences will await?

Join us for the world premiere season of this new adaptation from the award-winning book by Shaun Tan at the Dolphin Theatre, UWA.

Audience warning: this performance contains strobe lighting and smoke effects.
