Head of the House Season: Monday 7th - Saturday 12th April Time: 7pm Tickets: $15 waged $10 concession Award winning playwright Dean Hewison mixes bizarre characters, offbeat humour and a modern day murder mystery into a delicious and nutritious feast of comedy. Head of the House is a black comedy about five flatmates who discover their landlord's head in the washing machine. All is revealed as the flatties unravel the evidence - and each other's secrets - all the while being watched by the head, which is sitting on the kitchen table!

"Good jokes, an intriguing mystery, and an opportunity for eight actors to have a good time with their stereotypes and with the fast and furious verbal and physical excellent cast" - Laurie Atkinson, The Dominion Post

"Dean Hewison is a name to look out for" - Nelson Wattie, Theatre News
