Frank Forbes and the Yahoo Boy

Tuesday, 22 May 2018 to Saturday, 2 June 2018

After his wife leaves him and his son stops speaking to him, retired Adelaide engineer Frank whiles away his time sorting out 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 capricious decision to invest in Ishaku's next movie, Frank takes the desperate measure of flying to Lagos to get his money back.

Based on a true story, Frank Forbes and the Yahoo Boy is a new play by Adelaide writer and filmmaker Matt Hawkins.
