Adapted by Ross Mueller, from the Novel by Markus Zusak
Presented by Brown's Mart
Directed by Merrilee Mills
Production Design by Beck Adams
Meet Ed Kennedy - underage cabdriver, pathetic cardplayer, and useless at romance.
He lives in a shack with his coffee-addicted dog, the Doorman, and he’s hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey. Surrounded by his band of misfit friends, his life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence, until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.
That’s when the first Ace arrives. That’s when Ed becomes the Messenger.
Adapted from #1 New York Times Best Selling Author Markus Zusak’s Award Winning Novel, this mysterious black comedy is directed by the formidable Merrilee Mills and features extraordinarily immersive design by Bec Adams.
Brown’s Mart’s The Messenger may very well leave you with more questions than answers. It’s a cryptic journey filled with laughter, fists and love.
