Bruce Mason's classic one hander adapted by Raymond Hawthorne to be performed by a company as a two act play. 44 Roles may be doubled to 9 actors.
This quintessential Kiwi classic chronicles the friendship between a 12-year-old boy and the wild-limbed Firpo.
Through the boy's eyes we see the wonder of life on a perfect beach, in a perfect 1930s New Zealand, during a perfect summer. It's a world of magic and transformation, where anything can happen and miracles seem possible.
