It’s ten years since Tony Macaulay’s critically acclaimed memoir ‘Paperboy’ was first published in Ireland. Since then, the book has been published worldwide and become a bestseller. In 2018 ‘Paperboy’ was adapted into a critically acclaimed hit musical by Duke Special and Andrew Doyle, produced by British Youth Theatre, premiering to sell out audiences at the Lyric Theatre in Belfast. The musical returned to the Lyric in 2019 for a second sell out run. Such has been the success of the musical that the sequel ‘Breadboy’ is also being adapted for the stage by the same team for 2020.
On this evening Tony McCaulay will tell the story of the book and read a series of excerpts. He will be joined by Jon Bromwich, Executive Producer of British Youth Music Theatre and several members of the cast of ‘Paperboy’ who will perform some of the songs from the show.
