The Great Un-Wondering of Wilbur Whitaker

Past Event

All grown-ups were children once. Although few of them remember it.

There was a time, long ago, when Wilbur Whittaker’s mind would wander and wonder, but these days he cares more about sensible things like neck-ties and… fences.

As a boy, Wilbur kept his wonderings in a special shoebox, but as he grew up and followed the path of 'What Was Best' and 'Doesn’t That Sound More Sensible', he forgot all about his wonderings and his plans for one day.

That is until Wilbur is visited by a collections officer from 'The Bureau' – a recycling agency for long forgotten wonderings. Wilbur surrenders his special shoebox only to discover that without it, he begins to disappear. With time running out before he is un-wondered forever, Wilbur is drawn into an epic adventure that takes him to the furthest reaches of the galaxy.

From the writer/director duo behind 2021’s sell-out smash hit HOUSE and Helpmann Award-winning Bambert’s Book of Lost Stories, comes a brand new Australian play about creativity, growing up and living outside of the box. An intergalactic adventure for intergenerational audiences, this 80s inspired electric dream is a heartfelt and irreverent escapade for the whole family.
