Celebrities cameo in Fringe 2014 murder-mystery play

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 up to 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 play 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.

Howard Davis: Never Too Old To Rock & Roll - Jethro Tull

As Greil Marcus recently observed in an NYRB review of Robbie Robertson's autobiographical Testimony, in rock and roll there is always an origin story. In the case of Jethro Tull founder Ian Anderson, he claims to have been influenced by his father's big band and jazz record collections and the emergence of rock music in the 1950s, but became disenchanted with the "show biz" style of early US stars like Elvis Presley...
