Scoop Competition: Free Tickets To Foibles In Auck

Scoop Competition: Free Tickets To Foibles In Auckland

Scoop has a free double ticket to the theatre in Auckland for a lucky Scoop viewer who can answer these simple questions (see below) about Tim Bray's play Foibles.

Larger than life characters take centre stage in Tim Bray’s new solo show, Foibles.

Foibles heralds Tim Bray's return to the stage as a solo performer, following critically and audience acclaimed seasons of Me and My Vice (1998) and The Last Laugh (2001).

Tim (40) is an Auckland actor/playwright who has been creating his own style of theatre productions for more than 13 years. As founder of The Central Theatre (originating where The Silo now stands) he produced such classic and diverse shows as The Nice Show, a lovely and very nice cabaret starring Lisa Chappell and the late Kevin Smith, a musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Twits at the Herald Theatre, and the funny and very gay, Ponsonby Road.

His solo show, Me and My Vice, toured to the Gilded Balloon at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1998.

In Foibles Tim turns the focus on who as he presents an entertaining dig at our own foibles, frailties and bents in this quirky and energetic show?

In writing Foibles, Tim says he draws on what?

Where does Tim perform Foibles beginning September 1st?
