THCAPOHCTMAHYL - The Play Arrives At Bats

On The Conditions
and Possibilities of Helen Clark Taking Me as Her Young Lover - The Play


Click for big version

On The Conditions and Possibilities… is the first state-of-the-nation address for the Rogernomic generation – a punky powerpoint-driven monologue exploring obsession, politics and the hopes and dreams of a passionate but confused generation.

In 2002 a scurrilous booklet of the same title was published by the elusive Balclutha author Richard Meros. This stage adaptation, ostensibly an impassioned logical analysis of how the Right Honourable Miss Clark would succumb to the temptation of the lonely performer, is at heart an incisive satirical investigation into the effects of the past twenty years of user-pays, individualistic New Zealand politics.

‘We, who ask not what our country can do for us, but what we can do for ourselves!’

Arthur Meek – Performer: Arthur is the creator of the award-winning short film Being John Campbell (2002), and member of Billy T Nominated band The Lonesome Buckwhips (Best Comedy, Fringe 2007).

‘The National Party looks likely to form the next government, unless drastic action is taken. Miss Clark, I am that drastic action.’
