Local actress brings ‘Loveless’ musical home

Pukekohe local, Hayley Brown, brings Talking Mute’s production The Likes of a Loveless Dogwasher to Harrington Hall in Pukekohe this month.

The Likes of a Loveless Dogwasher is an exciting musical which explores themes of finding love in a modern world. The production is part of the Paper Anniversary II exhibition currently showing at Auckland Council’s Franklin Art Centre.

The Likes of a Loveless Dogwasher is performed by Talking Mute, an inspiring new theatre company created by ex-Pukekohe High School student Hayley Brown and Adrian Hooke. Talking Mute was founded out of a desire to create accessible, vibrant and fast-paced theatre with a message. The Likes of a Loveless Dogwasher is Talking Mute’s first script and fulfils their love of comedy, music and originality.

Hayley joins Adrian Hooke, Kieran Foster and Leroy Lakamu on stage. The musical begins with an invitation to a high school reunion – something Hayley’s character dreads attending as a single woman. Finding love in the new age turns out to be a comedic journey for all four actors.

The production debuted at The Basement Theatre in Auckland to a sell-out second half, and reviewers raved about the new company, with one critic calling it “an inoffensive and lovingly kiwi heart-warmer”.

Hayley’s well known in local circles as not only a successful graduate of Toi Whakaari: NZ Drama School in 2011, but an aspiring artist. She spent the last year touring New Zealand, acting with Melbourne Company Echelon Productions, as well as co-writing another play.

“We’re really excited that our local community gets to see home-grown talent perform not only a great role, but one co-written by her. It will be a fantastic night out.” says Franklin Art Centre Manager Suzette van Dorsser.

The Likes of a Loveless Dogwasher opens Thursday 21 February – tickets can be purchased through the Franklin Art Centre.
