'Kikia Te Poa' by Matthew Saville, directed by Larry Rew Season: Wednesday 20th Saturday 30th July (no show sun / mon) Time: 7pm Tickets: $16 full / $12 concession
A Maori, a Pakeha and an Afrikaner walk into a war.
Based on real events, 'Kikia Te Poa' is about the birth of a rivalry that would last one hundred years - on the rugby field, and in the politics of two very different nations. Rugby, war and national identity are all sites of conflict for the individuals caught up in the Boer War.
Written by Matthew Saville, writer of 'The Boxer' (Circa, BATS).
'VauDevil Cabaret' Season: Friday 22 Saturday 23 July Time: 10.30pm Tickets: $15 full / $12 concession
The VauDevil Cabaret is impure late night fun, an entertaining smorgasbord that transforms every minute.
An unexpected cascade of stimulationŠ from the glitz and insight of drag queen biblical sex education to the subversive decadence of belly-dancing clowns. Brought to you by circus folk, drag stars, singers, actors, clowns, designers, artists, frocks and dancers of every persuasion, the VauDevils guarantee to put a little deviltry into your weekend.
