We're going at it hammer and tongs

14 August 2006

Kia ora,

You poor things must be distraught this week - we don't have any shows on this week due to some well deserved maintenance time for the Theatre and foyer, getting done as we speak... the paint fumes are glorious, the power tools are awe-inspring and if you want to join in the fun let us know (ahem, shameful plug).

But never fear! Next week we have two cracker jack shows to get you back in the BATS swing of things - From next Tuesday, the all boxed up wonders of Shifting, and from next Friday that man about everywhere directs the supreme new NZ play and what remains. Get your tickets now folks, it is going to be a biggy.

As always, more info down below, and remember: booking is half the fun...

See you down here soon,


If I had a hammer - 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!


Tues 22 August - Sat 2 September

$16 full / $12 concession & groups 8+

Just how many times can one person shift houses, countries, lovers, jobs?

Building on a critically acclaimed season in 2004, shifting celebrates the contradictions and complexities in our constantly moving lives. It is theatre where boxes dance, realities blur and bus stops are a pick up joint.

and what remains

A potential future. Set at Wellington's International Departure's Lounge - and what remains is a story which foreshadows the possibility of ethnic cleansing in New Zealand.
