"We're the Saudi Arabia of wind"
- Mark Lachlan
The controversial issue of wind farming provides the backdrop for The SEEyD Theatre Company's sixth play TURBINE.

Mark Lachlan from the electricity company visits the self-sufficient Gusten household in Ohaunui to complete his consultation process before seventy turbines are erected in their 'backyard'. At first the family are united in their opposition to the project, but a family secret, erotic fiction, an autistic son, global warming and a most unlikely love story combine to crack their resolve.

Over three months SEEyD has researched, devised and written a local comedy that explores a complex global issue. What happens when a company that's doing everything it can to save the environment can't reconcile with an already environmentally conscious family?

"Power, speed, economy; blades cutting up, transforming nothing - wind - into power; into heat and light, sending energy into the heart of this beautiful land."
