Sunday Roast

The Moving Theatre Company presents
Sunday Roast
By Thomas Sainsbury

2 Actors. 8 Characters. The Giles family is inviting you for dinner.

The beast is fattened and ready for the slaughter. Father’s on carving duty. Mother is on vegetables. Daughters Courtney and Diane have dessert covered. Son-in-law Francois is in charge of looking good while actual son, Anthony, just wants to be left alone. Granddaughter Tamsin wants her desires satisfied. And adopted son, Rupert? Well, he just wants everyone to have a good time…

From the writer of Luv, The Mall and Loser and the producers of Mr Marmalade comes a family tale of love, sibling rivalry and very sharp knives.

"To say Thomas Sainsbury is an exciting new talent in New Zealand theatre is an understatement. He's the most challenging, down-to-earth, funny and refreshingly unsettling playwright/director I've come across in years."- SIAN ROBERTSON

“…a playwright with something to say, and saying it with a theatrical flair that is refreshing and stimulating." THE DOMINION POST

"Thomas Sainsbury is a remarkable talent … I can see him fast becoming a classic playwright of his generation.” – THEATREVIEW
