Six people are trapped in an isolated, snowbound cabin without power, heat or the ability to communicate with the outside world. As the snow piles higher, the tension escalates. When one of them dies in questionable circumstances they are faced with the possibility that there is a murderer amongst them. But which one? And will they kill again?

Straight from winning the New Zealand Young Playwrights Competition 2000, Remote delivers a sharp comedy about flatmates and the result of procrastinating. Work-shopped in Auckland under the direction of Gary Henderson (An Unseasonable Fall of Snow, Shortland Street) Remotes¹ use of physical comedy combined with a fast paced script had the workshop audience in hysterics.

0utside In

OUTSIDE IN is eccentric, rural New Zealand at it's best. Dark, cloistered and bizarre. Three beautiful daughters have been mourning the death of their mother for a decade. Along comes Dave, a mobile plumber who incidentally, accidentally spins the girls worlds out of control. Visually stunning, with a beautiful, original score.
