Growl Theatre’s first show for 2019 is a true blue parody of life’s trials and tribulations faced by an eccentric group of neighbours in suburban Australia.

Life was supposed to work out differently for young Foster Jones. Dreams of travelling the world were put on hold to support his overbearing and unemployed father, Bob.

But when a Christmas Lights Competition offers a hundred thousand dollar prize, the neighbourhood goes to war. Houses are decorated and displays are sabotaged. And while Bob battles the snobs across the road, Foster finds himself caught between betraying his family and escaping his father once and for all.

Summer Wonderland was written by Brisbane playwright Matthew Ryan, and was first performed by LaBoite Theatre in 2007.  Now a community theatre group is bringing this whimsical tribute to the Australian suburbs back to the stage.
