'Never Never'

'Never Never'

By Jackie van Beek

As part of the Shebang Festival of Women's Theatre

BATS Theatre, Monday 16th - Saturday 28th October, 6:30pm

Directed by Emma Willis Designed by Tracey Monastra


This is Jackie's first full- length play. NEVER NEVER is neither a light-hearted Drama nor a full-blown Stage Comedy. It is an extraordinary exploration of the most intense of human relationships coupled with Jackie's unique sense of humour. The comedy arises naturally from the situations presented: a distraught woman living in the back of a car, the fiance of a Jehovah's witness staging an immaculate conception and a drunken bogan portraying his sexuality in the heart of a drinking game. Oh and it's a musical too.

The Company

Directed by EMMA WILLIS (JEALOUS productions.) The cast includes JACKIE herself and PAOLO ROTONDO (star of "The Ugly" & "Stickmen"), MIRANDA MANASIADIS ("Milk", "Fever", "Flood") and ROB MOKORAKA (Capital E performer, "Questions")



Also coming to Auckland's SiLO Theatre soon.
