The Xmas Monologues 2

MEDIA RELEASE

THE XMAS MONOLOGUES 2
Seven twisted tales of the silly season by Thomas Sainsbury
The Basement Theatre December 20th to 22nd


We got a cat last Christmas. We got it for the kids but they didn’t like it all that much. So we got rid of it.’


THOMAS SAINSBURY will direct DAWN ADAMS, EDWARD CLENDON, HELEN CORRY, MIKE EDWARD, KURA FORRESTER, ROBERTO NASCIMENTO, CIARIN SMITH and JOSEPHINE STEWART-TEWHIU in his new play THE XMAS MONOLOGUES 2.

Following last years highly acclaimed THE CHRISTMAS MONOLOGUES, seven new tales of the twisted and the macabre will be told at The Basement theatre this December. THE XMAS MONOLOGUES 2 opens on 20 December.

A kidnap victim is forced to carry the next son of God. An ADHD suffering 8-year-old wants to trap some reindeer. A negligent family discovers kittens and puppies aren’t just for Christmas. A lonely petrol station attendant must work alone on Christmas Day. A stubborn woman witnesses road rage and holiday traffic in the extreme. A compulsive binge eater just can’t help themselves. And a timid young woman desperately wants to sing in her local choir.

THOMAS SAINSBURY is one of New Zealand’s most popular and prolific playwrights, gaining considerable attention and praise in the past few years for productions of his dark comedies in New Zealand, USA, Australia and London. His plays include Sunday Roast, LUV, The Mall, Loser, Beast and The Christmas Monologues. He has previously been selected three times for Playmarket’s New Zealand Young Playwrights Competition. The Mall, Loser and The Christmas Monologues have been published by The Play Press. Thomas’s debut TV show, the observational comedy, SUPER CITY, will air early next year on TV3.


WHEN: 20, 21 and 22 December, 8pm

WHERE: The Basement, Lower Greys Ave
