This was an extraordinary Production with a fabulous bunch of Actors aged 8-18
2014 Project for The Alan Duff Charitable Foundation,
better known as Duffy Books in Homes
Two groups of travelling actors journey from North Cape to Bluff bringing the message It’s Cool to Read and Cool to Achieve to tens of thousands of Duffy kids.
This year Duffy and his friend Rosie are excitedly awaiting a visit from Duffy’s famous, rugby league playing uncle, Bingo. They are taken aback however when they begin to learn that Bingo isn’t a big fan of books and maybe can’t read at all! With ideas from the audience and Duffy’s King of Colours book, the pair go on a journey to help Bingo learn the importance of reading and the benefits it can have for everyone, everywhere.
Together, Duffy and Rosie sing and stumble their way through to the realisation that everyone has a different favourite story and that each person’s story is just as awesome as the next.
