If you could be anyone in the world, who would you be? To Eamonn Marra, twelve years old, the answer is obvious: Will Jones, the coolest kid in intermediate. When Eamonn and Will end up at the same high school, both at the bottom of the heap, Eamonn gets a chance to live his dream – he strikes a deal with Will to switch lives, a couple of hours at a time, like the Animorphs in those books. Finally, Eamonn can be the person he wants to be, if only for a little bit… but what happens when that’s no longer enough?
The third show from comedian and writer Eamonn Marra (AotearoHA: Rising Stars, Respite), directed by New Zealand Fringe Award-winning director Adam Goodall (Stand Up Love, Proficiency Test), I, Will Jones is a provocative and hilarious story from one of New Zealand’s most highly-regarded up-and-coming comedians about the people we are and the people we’d rather be.
