About the event

Frank Forbes and the Yahoo Boy is the story of retired engineer Frank who, after his kids flee the nest, has nothing else to look forward to but the opportunity to sort out the tools in his shed. In a desperate attempt to get him to connect with society his daughter, Tracy, buys him a computer and an internet connection. Via random emails he encounters would-be Nollywood filmmaker, Ishaku, whose indefatigable optimism draws him into a world of comforting delusions. After the spur of the moment decision to invest in Ishaku’s next movie, Frank takes the desperate measure of flying to Lagos to get his money back.

Set in Adelaide and Nigeria and based on real events, Frank Forbes and the Yahoo Boy is presented by South Australian Playwrights Theatre, a new company dedicated to production of home grown theatrical work, who's aim is to inspire local writers and performing artists to create their own stories to enrich the performance culture of South Australia.
