The theme this year is Cruise Liner, so dress up and raid the piggy bank cos your cash on the night helps us buy new lights and upgrade our lighting grid.

Ian Hughes (Shortland Street, Bare) is beat poet Jack Kerouac and Scott Wills (Stickmen, Best Actor NZ Film Awards) is his side-kick & muse, Neal Cassady.
Just pull out the darkest, craziest thing you¹ve ever done. Just tell me, no excuses. In their pursuit for the ultimate high, Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady leave New York for Mexico, accompanied by a soundtrack of cool jazz, conversation, amphetamines & booze. This is the road trip that started all road trips.
It¹s the beat, the spoken word and two men who defined a generation. Written by Mike Hudson & directed by Margaret-Mary Hollins Beautiful Losers began life as a highly acclaimed 35 minute show created for the SiLO theatre¹s emerging directors programme, Restless Ecstasy, in 2002 and has been developed with assistance from Playmarket & Creative New Zealand into a full-length show starring the original cast.
