AoTERRORoa - 100%PURE


AoTERRORoa - 100%PURE

Backseat Driver Productions, as part of the Toi Whakaari: New Zealand Drama School's Graduation Season 2008, proudly present aoTERRORoa, an absurdest farce inspired by the New Zealand Terrorism Suppression Act and the arrests of the 'Urewera Seventeen' by the New Zealand Police in November 2007.

Fresh off the back of the runaway success On the conditions and possibilities of Helen Clark taking me as her young lover, director Geoff Pinfield has teamed up with award-winning playwright Jo Randerson, designer Caitlin Le Harivel and nine of New Zealand's hottest up and coming actors on the eve of their Graduation to create a caustic, risky, impolite play premiering at a time of social and political flux in New Zealand.

aoTERRORoa investigates the questions and fears of post 9/11 New Zealand through a whirlwind of whistle-blowing, mixed loyalties, inside-informants, confusion and kalashnikovs's.

aoTERRORoa has strictly limited seating, so book now to avoid disappointment.

11 Hutchison Rd, Newtown

WHEN: 28th October – 6th November

Simon Nathan: No Ordinary In-Laws

The title of this short memoir by Keith Ovenden is misleading – it would be better called “Bill, Shirley and me” as it is an account of Ovenden’s memories of his parents-in-law, Bill Sutch and Shirley Smith. His presence is pervasive through the book.

Their interactions were often complex and difficult... More>>
