A LIFT, A DOOR, A SET OF STAIRS – AND A BUST OF BRUCE MASON!


AFFINITY

Three strangers find themselves in a room.
Why are they there?
Why are they there together?

These questions drive the mystery and tension of this tight, fast paced drama which twists and turns from the apparently real to the definitely surreal.

The room in question in the box office area of Downstage Theatre – being used as a theatre space for the first time!

“ I wrote the play specifically for the space. I like a challenge!” says writer/director Sarah Delahunty, who in 2012 won the National Playwriting for the Young Competition for the second time.

Two the young cast have already some international acting experience. Both Neenah Dekkers- Reihana and Robbie Nicol were selected to perform onstage at the Globe Theatre in London as part of the SGCNZ Young Shakespeare Company.
Neenah has also been recently see in Tigers of Wrath at Circa.

Ist Gear Productions has brought several other successful productions to the Fringe – 2b or nt 2b (Pick of Fringe 2008) Medea Songs (2010) and Crazy Joint Love. (2011)

In 2012 they had a sell out season with the 1960’s rock musical HAIR.
