The Danger Age

by Kate Mulvany

A boy and his misfit friends save their town with help from the U.S. President.




It’s 1942, and in the small town of Kalbarri in Western Australia, there’s a little boy with a lot on his mind. He’s a target at school because of his asthma, and his mum is having an affair with the local Japanese doctor. Then John receives a disturbing phone call from the President of the United States and, with his ragtag army of misfits, he sets about saving Kalbarri from destruction.


The world premiere of The Danger Age was produced by La Boite Theatre Company at the Roundhouse Theatre and opened on 28 February 2008.
