For immediate release James Kiesel GDP Productions

Skindiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Harlot
(an Indiana Jones burlesque)

GDP Productions, a Philadelphia-based theater company specializing in making cool, twisted, and cheap theater, is set to bring its unique aesthetic to Wellington in March. Past projects include Sex & Violence, a violence and burlesque themed cabaret, Ubu Roi, Alfred Jarry’s warped French classic, and A Study In Pink, a Sherlock Holmes burlesque. (Check out http://www.gdpproductions.com to learn more).

Raiders of the Lost Harlot is the latest in our ‘burlesque for the thinking man and the drinking man’ series, which has produced 5 successful shows over the past three years. With these productions, GDP seeks to blur the lines between traditional theatre performance and burlesque, providing satire, nuance, and production value in addition to the traditional glitz and tease typically associated with such shows.

Our burlesque shows (and this show in particular) features much more than just burlesque routines; there’s puppetry, stage combat, pole dancing, and several other surprises along the way. Featuring the talents of Andre Corey, Willow Noir, Gracie Hart, Foxie Hart, Laura Saurus, Alexander Sparrow, and the musical talents of the Victory Rollers. Raiders of the Lost Harlot is written by Cubby Altobelli and directed by James Kiesel.

Performances occur March 5th – 7th at 8pm March 8th at 10pm at the Fringe Bar (http://www.thefringebar.co.nz), 26 - 32 Allen Street.

(Drink specials will be available!) Tickets are $20 for general admission ($15 for students / industry members), with $30 VIP seating available. Online tickets are available through Eventfinda at http://bit.do/skindy

Scoop Review Of Books: No Pretence. No Bullshit. Fine Poem.

John Dickson doesn’t publish much; never has. Indeed, this new collection is his first such in 18 years. As he wryly and dryly states,

I’ve published two slim volumes, and spent all
My time working on the next.
