Peek-a-boo – There's You!

Media Release
Peek-a-boo – There's You!

A SlightlyTouching show
There's You

An adult's logic.

A child's world of imagination.

The reality of domestic violence.

Which side are you on?

View the stress of domestic violence through the innocent eyes of a child.

Follow Michael down the rabbit hole where imagination and reality entwine in his pursuit for identity.

Life’s tough when you’re seven- especially when you’re a clown. Michael has the constant challenge of keeping the peace between his warring mother and father. Desperate to make his mother happy and to be accepted by his father, it all becomes too much for a little clown to take. Michael crawls into a world of make-believe where he is king. Could Michael be safe in this new world?

There's You was devised and performed by graduates of the Wellington Performing Arts Centre’s Advanced Acting course, with guidance from Chapman-Tripp award-winning director, Ryan Hartigan (After Kafka) and BBC international award-winning playwright, Phillip Braithwaite (The Human Engine). There’s You clearly demonstrates SlightlyTouching’s make 'em laugh, make 'em cry approach to theatre.

There’s You
February 8, 9, 8pm
February 10, 6.30pm
