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.

"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.”
