2b or nt 2b
"A comic gem” – Dominion Post
"2b or nt 2b … should be everywhere" - Theatreview

Six classic characters from Shakespeare, Chekhov, Ibsen and Sophocles meet as teenagers on whatsthepont.com - all finding their lives a little too difficult.

Antigone (Antigone), Hamlet (Hamlet), Hedda (Hedda Gabler), Irena (The Three Sisters), Helena (A Midsummer Nights Dream), and Masha (The Seagull) vie with each other for the position of Most Tragic Life Story and meet IRL with the intention of ending it all.

Dysfunctional families, unrequited love and longing for escape, using original text and texting, quotes and questions, literature and laughs - 2b or nt 2b is a comedy that creates a contemporary setting and an intriguing new interpretation for these tragic lives.

Together can they find ways to change their scripts and write themselves a future?

A new solo comedy with songs starring Neenah Dekkers-Reihana, (TIgers of Wrath, After Juliet)

Sixteen-year-old Chloe Anderson from Hamilton starts a blog to immortalize her historically totally important thoughts, and her deepest dreams of winning X-Factor.

External events open her eyes to the need to see more in her life than how she can lose 2kg and become a star.

"Did my auntie know what would happen if I started a blog. Did she know I might start to think?”

NB: Trigger Warning – both these shows contain potential traumatic subject matters.
