There's more to land than real-estate. There's more to family than DNA!

Jane Clifton leads a stellar cast to tell a story about family, loyalty and property prices in regional Australia. A family block, worthless for generations is suddenly re-zoned as part of a regional housing estate. Written with wit and in a crackling Australian idiom by award winning playwright Felix Nobis, this is a fast paced, funny and highly satisfying piece of theatre about life beyond the big city

Founded in October 2004 Larrikin Ensemble Theatre brings together the combined talents, expertise and experience of artistic director Chris Bunworth and producer Wolf Heidecker. They create ‘comedy with a conscience’ for the national and international market place. Larrikin has, to date, toured The Eight by Jeff Goode(Butterfly Club, Drouin Arts Centre) and Trio by Dina Ross(La Mama, Adelaide and regional Victoria) to critical acclaim and audience satisfaction after their Melbourne premieres. Given its focus on themes that resonate with contemporary Australian life, we are confident that touring this production will enhance Larrikin's reputation as a producer of quality and astute entertainment throughout Australia.

Community Engagement

Humorous and Educational - a contemporary bush ballad - it's about us now in regional Australia. Boy Out Of The Country asks your community to examine itself as urbanization across the Nation confronts every rural community. Funny, fast paced, and written in an Australian poetic vernacular reminiscent of the poetic tradition of Banjo Paterson, Boy out of the Country tells a story of land, family and belonging.
