Jimmy is an artist. His dad, Brute, is a butcher with short, stubby inartistic fingers. In Boy Slaughter, Jimmy relives growing up in a small town with big characters and his desperate escape from it all.
Boy Slaughter won Queensland Theatre Company's Young Playwright’s Award in 2002, and was produced by the Shiela's Shorts Festival in 2003 at Metro Arts. It was produced twice by the graduating students at the University of Tasmania in 2006, and by Brisbane Arts Theatre in 2008.
Boy Slaughter is published by the Australian Script Centre.
