A magical stage adaptation of the award winning book.

Tiger is sixteen and lives in Burnie. Her Aunt Kath calls her Tiger. Her friends call her Resey. The boy she loves calls her Champ. She’s a lot of different things for a lot of different people. She’s running through high school, but someone in her life is about to fall. When he does, her perfect world falls with him. For the first time in her life, Tiger can’t stand being on the ground.

The story is a beating heart of messy, funny characters and their lives are lovingly adapted for the stage by Kate Gaul.

‘Girl Running, Boy Falling is everything you could hope for … it’s thoughtful, artful, deftly crafted, raw, real and deeply affecting.’
Nick Earls, Penguin Books

This project was assisted by Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts and Supported by Hotel Grand Chancellor.
