All of history is just stories we tell each other to understand the world, and every story is at least in part about the person doing the telling.

THE HISTORY BOY is the first full-length solo improvised work from award-winning Wellington improvisor Matt Powell and director Jennifer O'Sullivan (Awkward Threesome, Soap Factory). Inspired by a childhood fascination with interesting facts and stories from history, THE HISTORY BOY examines historical narratives through playful storytelling, weaving together themes and ideas that span continents and millennia.

Fresh from seasons in the New Zealand Fringe Festival and the Auckland Improv Festival, Matt and Jennifer are delighted to bring THE HISTORY BOY to Nelson for one show only.

“Powell brings forth intricate details and quick-witted responses that reward an intelligent audience’s attention.” — The Plus Ones (Melbourne)

“Intoxicating stage presence… a genuine star with a quicksilver brain” — Uther Dean
