Artistic and political celebrities cameo in Fringe 2014 murder-mystery play

Audiences will recognise a few famous faces popping up as cameos in modern murder-mystery, Immaculate Deception, which premieres at the 2014 Wellington Fringe Festival from 7 to 10 February.

Producer and director Tanya Piejus says, “Immaculate Deception includes several scenes set in the remand wing of a prison. Characters are brought into the scene by a Corrections officer and it was the inspired idea of the playwright to ask prominent Wellingtonians from the artistic and political fields to cameo as the prison officer.

“I don’t want to spoil the surprise about who will be appearing, but we have four cameos in each performance and the audience will have fun spotting who they are as they come on stage to deliver their lines.

Immaculate Deception is being performed as a fundraiser for youth and sustainable development charity, Raleigh International, to which all the profits will go. The response to our request for cameo performers has been fantastic and we’re hugely appreciative of the support from all who said yes.”

Immaculate Deception is the debut by New Zealand’s medical hypnosis expert, Dr Pat McCarthy, who has also performed on stage, TV and film.

It will be performed from 7 to 10 February 2014 at the Whitireia Theatre, 25-27 Vivian Street. Bookings at www.thetheatre.co.nz. Tickets $12–18. Follow production news on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ImmaculateDeceptionFringe2014 or www.tinypieces.co.nz/immaculatedeception.html.
