The Scruffy Bunny Improv Theatre hosts storytelling shows monthly, the next show is Sunday 29th April at 4pm.

Did you know New Zealand has a key role in peace-making influence? Who were the great peacemakers? What are their stories? A wonderful tale about our very own Nuclear Free New Zealand, a nod of respect to our suffrage anniversary, Princess Te Puia, Te Whiti and more. Linda Hansen, author, teller and trainer takes us on a journey to discover these storytellers and their great influence. Stories reaching across the nations to effect change. Linda says “This is what telling tales is all about.”

This month’s Story & Laughter will spur you on and raise your spirits.

Linda is an experienced researcher, author and storyteller of live tales for fifteen years. Linda has worked with several of the people in this tale, and the story arose from her research into particular peacemakers linked in practice and their shared understanding of the essence of non-violence. Her books include ‘An Unexpected Hero’ about conscientious objector Archie Baxter's impact on a rural community.

There is no age restriction for audiences this month.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Max Rashbrooke Review: The King's Singers and Voices New Zealand

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
