A Boy & A Bean is a play about marriage equality, or the lack of it, and why these issues really matter. It was written by Nick Atkins, who lived most of his life at Emu Plains, and now, at 25, has already studied drama in France and Germany, won a Cate Blanchett acting award and has just learned A Boy & A Bean has been invited into the upcoming Dublin Theatre Festival so he's heading to Ireland in May to perform the one-man play. First off, it's playing at Erskineville and Penrith. I spoke to him during rehearsals at the Joan at Penrith.
