Six O’clock Swill 12 & 13 DECEMBER @ Mighty Mighty

Door Sales Only from 5:30pm – $5 Show at 6pm

Pint Sized Theatre!

The Six O’clock Swill is a monthly series of one act plays held at Mighty Mighty on Cuba Street, Wellington, New Zealand.

December brings a sneak peak at On the Conditions and Possibilities of Helen Clark Taking Me as Her Young Lover adapted from the book by Richard Meros. An original theatrical monologue exploring obsession, politics and the hopes and dreams of a passionate but confused generation. Ostensibly the performance is an impassioned logical analysis of how the Right Honourable Miss Clark would succumb to the temptation provided by the lonely performer, the over-educated and unemployed character of Richard Meros charges through the pop-culture slipstream of our recent political history to prove his amorous point.

'Why me? Because in me, and in me specifically, Helen will see the reflection of her own deserved glory of office. For like David to Michaelangelo, I am her creation. I am that which she has, like God on the seventh day, molded in her own image! She is my benign Doctor Frankenstein, I am the living testament to her skill as a politician! Allow me to explain…

Director: Jeff Pinfold Starring: Arthur Meek

In The Muse by American playwright Quincy Long a playwright visits his muse. He has come unprepared but hey, he can wing it, right? She's his muse and she'll love his brilliant idea for a new play; no question about it. So, who is this unknown playwright who dares to position himself above the 'names' in his chosen profession? Who is the muse who dares to challenge his import? And who are these two fine new actors who dare to bring you their truthful interpretation of a wonderfully written piece?

Director: Phil Darkins Starring: Melissa Billington and David Allen

And our hilarious improvised saga MAGNUM: The Lost Episodes continues …after the tragic (and hilarious) death of Ice Pick will Magnum and Co finally discover the wonders behind the silver door using his dying words of wisdom?

So for only $5 you get three one act plays performed by some of Wellington’s finest talent – all in one of Wellington’s funkiest bars, Mighty Mighty!

So come on down, grab a pint and enjoy an evening of culture.
