Insect Stages Protest Outside Bats

Insect Stages Protest Outside Bats

An insect did indeed stage a protest at BATS.

No! We are not talking about Simon Vincent playing Greg Samsa in the production of Metamorphosis currently showing at BATS, but of the giant Weta that has been spotted not once but three times at the entrance of the theatre during the season.

Spooky !

Maybe he had come down to see what all the buzz was about and loved the show so much he decided to stay or he was trying to suss out the new Front of house manager Debs Rea who joined the BATS family last week or he came by to say good bye to Steph Walker who took off to UK last week to graduate. (she will be back in two weeks ) If you haven't booked your tickets for this highly stylised show yet then hurry as there are only 5 more nights left and tickets are going fast and if you are lucky you might even see the protesting critter.

love BATSxx
