'Ain't it glorious': Queensalnd Theatre to premiere Boy Swallows Universe© Supplied Queensland Theatre’s artistic director Sam Strong and author of Boy Swallows Universe Trent Dalton are eager to see the theatre production come into fruition.

Trent Dalton's award-winning novel Boy Swallows Universe will come alive for the first time on a theatre stage in Brisbane.

Queensland Theatre secured rights for the world premiere production in September 2020 as part of the Brisbane Festival.

Boy Swallows Universe has sold more than 160,000 copies in Australia since it was first published in July 2018 and and became the first book to have four wins at the Australian Book Industry Awards.

The Miles Franklin-longlisted novel's publisher, HarperCollins Australia, has also sold the television rights, with Australian actor Joel Edgerton named as the producer.

Inspired by Dalton's complicated youth, the novel follows the story of a 12-year-old boy who finds comfort in escapism to face challenges with a mute brother, a mother in jail, a heroin dealer for a stepfather and a notorious criminal for a babysitter.

Dalton, who works as a journalist, said Brisbane was the perfect place for the stage production.

"It was the people of Brisbane who took that wild, strange book and ran with it first and that book belongs to them now and this production will belong to them, too," he said.

Dalton said he hoped to take his mother to the production that would share some of her story in the city as well as shining a light on Brisbane.

“Just to see these so often overlooked Brisbane places that are so dear and connected to me – Bracken Ridge, Darra, old Boggo Road Gaol – put up there on stage is deeply moving to me," he said.

"There are countless people that I love, heart and soul, out there in those suburbs who might be able to come to that play and say, ‘Yeah, that’s my world, that’s my Brisbane’, and I’ll be right there beside them screaming, ‘Hell yes, ain’t it glorious’."

Queensland Theatre’s artistic director Sam Strong will direct an adaptation by Tim McGarry in a co-production between Queensland Theatre and Brisbane Festival.

Strong said Boy Swallows Universe was perfect for adapting to the stage, featuring larger-than-life characters, a combination of magic realism and crime-thriller and dialogue that 'leapt off the page'.

“Boy Swallows Universe has captivated hundreds of thousands of Australians with its arresting portrait of growing up in '80s Brisbane," he said.

"It has captured the hearts of us all through its story of love’s triumph over the darkest of circumstances.

"I am more excited about the theatrical version of Boy Swallows Universe than any of the 30-odd shows I have directed for the Australian main stage.

"I cannot wait to direct this landmark Brisbane story on a Queensland Theatre stage.”
