Bovine University presents
DELIVER US
by Paul Rothwell


The Bovine University co-operative, in association with PlayMarket, are proud to present a terrifying new play from PAUL ROTHWELL, the controversial author of Golden Boys (BATS 2004, Circa 2006) and Hate Crimes (BATS 2005).

Cherie and Merrick are a successful suburban couple who’ve tried to give everything to their two ungrateful teenage children. Cherie hopes her daughter’s unplanned pregnancy will finally create their own mummy-daughter bond. But the moment the blue-tinged baby enters her home, Cherie's life changes completely. Thoughts of the baby consume her mind night and day, and enthusiasm for her premature granddaughter is soon overcome by morbid dread. Despite her family's fear she is losing her mind, Cherie knows maternal instinct never lies. Someone sinister grows in the nursery.

Combining the usual Rothwellian ingredients of malevolent horror, absurd comedy, incredible cruelty, and controversial insights into the heart of New Zealand society, Deliver Us guarantees to be the most terrifying play in the 2007 Fringe.

Its final outcome will haunt you forever.

With a stellar, award-winning cast including Erin Banks, Alex Greig, Salesi Le’ota and Jodie Hillock, Deliver Us is directed by David Lawrence and produced by Zelda Edwards.
