Carry On Randerson
Season: Tuesday 20 ­ Saturday 24 January
Time: 8.30pm
Tickets: $16 full / $12 concession

New Zealand's only brother-sister comedy duo, Joanna and Jeremy Randerson, return to BATS with their cult hit show Carry on Randerson.


::::more info::::


Carry on Randerson: Part Two continues the comic theatrical investigation of the real-life Randerson siblings, Joanna and Jeremy. Part One premiered six years ago and ended with Jeremy exploding Joanna. Part Two is darker, more mystical and older.

As always with these Randersons, music and dancing feature highly, and the material is largely comic. Carry on Randerson deals with layers of reality, death, new life and family relationships, part two is darker and more philosophical than the first.

Jo Randerson, is a Wellington-based writer and performer. She has published two books, 'The Knot' and 'The Spit Children' and is the author of numerous plays that have been performed in Wellington and around New Zealand. Jo was the Robert Burns Fellow for 2001 at Otago University and received the Bruce Mason Playwrighting Award in 1997. She has recently returned from a writing course in Russia, travelling on a Winston Churchill Fellowship. Her next book, The Keys to Hell, with illustrations by Taika Waititi, will be published late-2004 by VUP.

Jeremy Randerson's first public appearance on stage was in the 1994 cult hit Edge Smedge with his sister. He has been in the theatre ever since, primarily as a performer and devisor. Jeremy directed and designed the recent production of 'The Rise and Fall and The Fall and Rise of Dinky Jon' . Earlier this year he performed in Theatre Stampede's The Young Baron and he also featured in the Robbers Dog short Delores at the international film festival. His hobbies include cooking, rabbit shooting and massage.
