Ticket prices $12 /$15 or season pass for all 3 plays $24/$36

'The Many Faces of Kelly j Loko' by Stephen Bain (6.30pm) : 'Stephen Bain has always had a taste for the experimental and boundary pushing and here a giant animated character addresses the audience... Alisha Smith, as Kelly, is compelling... an intriguing production.' Lynn Freeman, Capital Times

'Exchange' by Lauren Jackson (8pm) : 'Under Kerryn Palmer's intuitive direction, her cast (several of them expertly juggling numerous roles) is superb - tightly knit, generous to each other on stage, committed and passionate.' Lynn Freeman, Capital Times

'Collective Agreement' by Whiti Hereaka (9.30pm) : '...a satirical play, set on a shop floor... There are some good black-humoured laughs to be had and it's certainly a reminder what a pain in the proverbial we can all be as customers.' Lynn Freeman, Capital Times
