Nick: an Accidental Hero

LOT23 is proud to present...

Nick: an Accidental Hero


Belly laughs a'plenty, moments of true beauty, Nick: An accidental Hero is the enormously affecting and heartbreakingly honest story of New Zealand sportsman, adrenalin junkie and all-round wildman Nick Chisolm. Nicks life ground to a halt when he was struck by a major stroke at the age of 27. He was left with a condition called 'locked in syndrome' - known to those who have experienced it as 'pure hell'. Nicks unexpected recovery has baffled the medical profession and the play explores his fierce determination, the many characters that populate his life and the unlikely road to true love. After sell out seasons, awards and critical acclaim, Chapman Tripp winning actress and creator Renee Lyons brings her solo show back for 2 nights only. An unstoppable tour de force of talent, imagination and a testament to the strength of the human spirit, Lyons has performed the show to critical acclaim throughout New Zealand and Edinburgh. This fundraising event is to now help her get the show to Australia!

Werewolf: Rescuing Paul Robeson

Would it be any harder these days, for the US government to destroy the career of a famous American entertainer and disappear them from history – purely because of their political beliefs?
