A Play About Fear

• Written by: my accomplice
• Directed by: Uther Dean
• Circa Two

Part of the NZ Fringe Festival

Every scary movie you love as you’ve never seen them before!

The acclaimed theatre company that brought you the sell-out sensations Joseph K and A Play About Space – Best Theatre (Dunedin Fringe), Best Design (Wellington Fringe) – is bringing the Fringe to Circa in this thrilling roller-coaster ride through fear.

In the spirit of Scream and Evil Dead 2, my accomplice will take all your favourite bits from the thriller and horror genres, and look at them through the lens of their trademark lo-fi, high-energy, extremely theatrical style.

Starring Hannah Banks, Sam Hallahan, Kate Clarkin, and Chapman Tripp winners Paul Waggott and Alex Greig.

Critics have raved about their previous work:

“Comic genius” — Theatreview

“A lively theatrical imagination” — The Dominion Post

“Thought-provoking, must-see theatre” —

A Play About Fear (my accomplice) – THEATRE

Circa Two, Circa Theatre, 1 Taranaki Street, Wellington CBD

Tues – Sat 7.30pm and Sun 4.30pm, 7-9 & 11-16 Feb (60mins)


Over the last few years we made plays about love and space – people seemed to like them and we won a few awards. Obviously, fear was the next logical step. We think you’ll really like this one.
