The Boy on the Roof

about the show...

After originally appearing in the role of Mason at the Stables Theatre in 1988, Bryan directed (and co-produced with Sideswipe Productions) Allan Mackay’s nail biting story in March and April 1996.

The scene is set when past schoolboy football hero, Mickey, holds siege on a city building’s roof, with his father’s rifle. Dean, his mate… and football rival, is sent up to talk Mickey down.

The play is a fast moving and dramatic one-act work.
