About this show

In Alan Ayckbourn's play, The Boy Who Fell Into a Book, Kevin is into his new book in a big way, but it's time for bed...and Dad won't stop nagging him to turn out the light. Suddenly, Kevin finds himself in the thick of the action alongside his hero, the streetwise investigator Rockfast Slim. Somehow they must travel through all the books on Kevin's shelf to find a way home and escape the clutches of the mysterious underworld baddie known only as The Green Shark. Their headlong dash takes them through Grimm's Fairy Tales, Kidnapped, a book of Ghost Stories and even Chess for Beginners...only just avoiding a family of jelly-throwing Wooblies along the way.
