Love BATS x

The Collective The Gryphon Theatre, 22 Ghuznee Street Tuesday 3rd - Saturday 14th June, 7.30pm Tickets $16 and $12 (or $10 if you show us your appendicitis scar) bookings 383 6058 or

In spite of huge public interest, the first season of The Collective at BATS Theatre had to be cancelled after two nights due to actor Jason Whyte¹s emergency surgery to have his appendix removed, meaning he was unable to complete the season in which he played German theatre practitioner Bertolt Brecht. The Collective is returning for a short season at the Gryphon Theatre, opening tonight.

The Dominion Post called it ³an extraordinary piece of writing and a dynamic and powerful piece of theatre ... an exceptionally strong group of young actors².

It seems indisputable now that others wrote much of Brecht¹s work. But the puzzle is, WHY have these people (mostly women) remained hidden? Why have they allowed his name to be placed on their work? Why does ANYONE allow others to take credit for their work? And what kind of person would engineer this sort of deception? Why on earth didn't they expose him as a fraud and leave!?
