Not all toys have the child’s interests at heart

ROYALE PRODUCTIONS presents:

TOYS

By Natalie Medlock and Dan Musgrove

Not all toys have the child’s best interests at heart.

From the writer’s of last year’s smash hit Christ Almighty! comes another serving of yuletide mischief.

It’s Christmas time at 7 year-old Charlie’s house, and Charlie has gone away in a big white Christmas truck, with flashing Christmas lights on top. Something terrible has happened to Charlie; and his toys have got some explaining to do…

Join the revolving cast of 40 actors from stage and screen as they ask the tough questions: will Ball survive being thrown at the ranchslider again? Is Viewmaster and his obsession with Kevin Bacon really to be trusted? Will Barbie have to go and live at the dump?

TOYS. It’s not for children.

TOYS plays at The Basement Theatre from Dec 2nd – 18th. No shows Mondays. Bookings: iticket.co.nz. Adults $35 / Seniors & Students $30 / Actors’ Equity $25 / Group bookings 6+ $30 each
