The History Boy
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 a new improvised work, performed by the award-winning Matt Powell (Awkward Threesome, Soap Factory) and inspired by the imperfect recollections of performer and audience alike.
Matt Powell is an improvisor, director, and writer with over 20 years’ experience creating and performing shows. He has been part of The Court Jesters Christchurch), PlayShop, WIT, and Soap Factory. He has been performing in the New Zealand Fringe Festival since 2014. THE HISTORY BOY is his first full-length solo show.
Directed by Jennifer O'Sullivan, and developed at Late Night Knife Fight (winner: September 2019). Part of NZ Fringe Festival 2020.
"Powell brings forth intricate details and quick-witted responses that reward an intelligent audience’s attention."
