Coming this weekend… 2016 Unitec Shakespeare Season

Coming this weekend… 2016 Unitec Shakespeare Season

Unitec’s graduating acting class have been divided into two companies to present As You Like It and The Winter’s Tale.

As You Like It could be the prototype of Romantic Comedy blending heroism with sentiment and pure fun. Themes of injustice, forgiveness and love run through the play, but all the while a sense of play pervades all. Directed by Calum Gittins. Opens June 10th.

The Winter’s Tale is both comedic and sad with themes of jealousy and suspicion playing alongside patience and hope. A man eating bear, a statue that comes to life, rogues and clowns, the play is peopled with such an array of extra-ordinary characters. Directed by Paul Gittins. Opens June 11th.

This season of back-to-back Shakespeare sees the Unitec acting programme at its best; talented and skilled performers, top industry directors and The Bard himself. Don’t miss out!

Gordon Campbell: On DHB Deficits And Free Trade

Currently the world is looking on aghast at the Trump administration’s plans to slash Obamacare, mainly in order to finance massive tax changes that will deliver most of their gains to the wealthy. Lives will be lost in the trade-off. Millions of Americans stand to lose access to the healthcare they need.

Spot the difference with New Zealand, where DHBs are under intense pressure to reduce deficits within a climate of chronic underfunding. More>>
