Wonder Boy

Author(s): Ross Willis
Company: Bristol Old Vic On Screen
Running time: 1h 30min approx

Sonny is twelve. Living with a 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 take on his school and home life troubles—but communication is power, and Sonny must find a way to be heard.

But when cast in the school production of Hamlet—his worst nightmare—he soon finds the real heroes are closer than he thinks.

Wonder Boy is a coming-of-age story that champions the power of communication against an unforgiving school system.
