Creativity is the centre of a spirit to be seen and felt in Wellington as young 24 year old actor Robert Lloyd performs his debut play "There once was a boy" as a part of the Season of Shorts at BATS Theatre.

The play is centered on a boy who gets lost on the way to his future and finds more than he thought he would, as he delves deep into himself. To find out what happens next means buying a ticket.
