Small Town Boy is a debut solo show Imagine a bare stage, a chair, a blues harp, a conga drum, and one actor who takes us on an exaggerated auto-biographical adventure through the life of a young man who shifts from Tauranga to Wellington.

Full-moon drumming, hairdressers, broken down cars, nightclubs, and new flats are all par for the course.

You may have last seen Eryn in Trainspotting-the play at the Phoenix last year, in which he played Tommy and Sickboy.
