A Boy and a Bean
Company: Nick ‘n’ Tom
Jack likes David. David likes Jack. The story seems simple enough. Add to this a public debate about how they like, why they like and what they like; Jack and David become confused quickly. Emerging Sydney based artist Nick Atkins enters a world where giants dwell in the suburban houses of Australia, beanstalks take root in corrupted soil and a boy called Jack strays between love, marriage equality, legislation and folklore.
“Atkins’ script is superb. It’s original, it’s funny throughout and when it needs to, it certainly gets you thinking:” – The Brag, Sydney.
