No Chocolate thanks, I'm off for a Swim

10 April 2006

Hello all,

All the smart bunnies are hopping their way to BATS this week - who could turn down the opportunity to see a hot girl in her swimming togs in Theatre Pataphysical's Never Swim Alone in this season of chocoholic gluttony???

About as few people who would turn down the chance to see Mui, a groundbreaking bilingual show in English and Cantonese starring that Asian beauty, Katlyn Wong...

And for those of you a little worried about the Cantonese bits in the script, no fear! You hardly notice! Even James, our lovely Programme Manager understood it all (and he is very much an English speaker).

But hurry, they both finish on Thursday night - in time for a well deserved break for us all. NZ's version of Kath & Kim will be here in Check It Out from Wednesday 19th April (more info below).

Love you as much as we love chocolate,

Hop to it! - to book for any performance at BATS email with your name, the show, date and number of tickets. We will reply to confirm your booking and you can pay when you come to the show. Choice!

"... the real 21st century Chinese women ...' - Tze Ming Mok, Landfall

"... it's the almost intangible nature of the story telling that gives Mui its special quality. Definitely worth going to - especially right now, with China so much in the local news."
