"This award-winning Aussie production imported by the New Victory Theater is based on a Dutch novel set in 1951 Amsterdam. It tells the story of 9-year-old Thomas, who records his thoughts in a diary he calls “The Book of Everything.”
And Thomas has a lot of material. His religious-fanatic father regularly beats his mother, and browbeats him and his sister. And Thomas is hopelessly in love with his sister’s best friend, Eliza, who has an artificial leg that squeaks when she moves."
