Author(s): Written and composed by Jordan Li-Smith, based on the novel by Lara Williamson
Company: National Youth Music Theatre

Adapted from Lara Williamson’s hit novel, The Boy who Sailed the Ocean in an Armchair tells the
story of Becket, whose life is turned upside down when he, his brother and his dad are running away from home in the middle of the night, leaving behind their almost-mum Pearl without saying goodbye.

Whilst coming to terms with the fact that his real mum died before he had a chance to say goodbye to her too, he arms himself with an armchair of stories and one thousand paper cranes, determined to bring his family back together again.
