Riddiford Street: Medical Comedy Drama Thingy...

Riddiford Street: Medical Comedy Drama Thingy....

One of Wellington's newest Troupes, PlayShop, brings you Medical Soap Opera at its best..and most raw. A cast of 16 will rotate through the 5 night season to unfurl tales of romance, betrayal, friendships...and health care.

Each night is a new episode building on the last. The audience gets the power to chose the major event of each show creating unknowns within the storylines. With characters, context and set evolving through out the season...why not come more than once?

This show is recommended for audiences 14 plus. Some adult content of course. Oh and this show is for fun people. Don't come if you are boring.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
