“Nothing happens by accident. All I want is everything now”

One wrong move and the waiter loses the use of his legs. Chronic OOS turns a man to violence. A woman becomes hopelessly lost in Hanoi while another convinces herself she’s dying of cancer.

Winning Productions returns to Wellington after it’s sell out season of Stories Told To Me By Girls, for two weeks only at BATS Theatre. Opening 2 May to the 13th their new play everything. now explores the way work in the 21st century is moulding our bodies into monsters.

“This is a story that ended up telling itself. Everyone has a story about how work has worked their body and the more people we spoke to the more we realised that the way people see their bodies directly relates to how they see the world around them” says writer/director Stephen Bain (Kelly J Loko, Under Lili’s Balcony). “Viewed in comparison to third world countries where manual labour and a holistic view of the body predominates, the western physique is fast becoming an inefficient machine.”

To create everything. now Stephen has been work-shopping since January in Wellington and Auckland with some of New Zealand’s finest young talent; Toi Whakaari graduate Rachel Forman (The Jack Manning Trilogy), Caoimhe Macfehin (The Many Faces of Kelly J Loko), Unitec dance grad Josh Rutter (Unsolved Crimes of the Art: Part 1: The Power Of Song) and Bloodworks co-founder Regan Taylor (What’s Up Bro?).

Together, with extensive use of video images and new songs by Leila Adu, they have created a physical and emotional journey into the bodies and minds of the characters of this modern tale. And as it follows the four as they battle to align their bodies and their minds with their lives, it’s going to be hard to ignore a play that gives you everything. now.
