Charlie Bucktin escapes his small-town life through books. Bored, bullied and lonely, his world is changed forever when fellow outsider Jasper Jones knocks on his window to solve a murder. Always the town scapegoat because of his dark skin, Jasper knows he’ll be the first suspect. He pulls Charlie into a race against time – and the town’s cops – to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Based on Craig Silvey’s celebrated novel, this stage adaptation by the award-winning Kate Mulvany is a heart-warming, poignant and moving ride into the subconscious of Australia’s small towns.

Hilarious, bright and bubbling with intrigue, Jasper Jones is a coming-of-age story that has been loved by both the young and the young-at-heart and has enjoyed sold out seasons around the country. Now it’s Adelaide’s turn.
