SLOUCHING TOWARD BETHLEHEM
by Dean Parker

The true story of New Zealand's most evil prime minister ever! An epic, expressionist biography of Muldoon, taking us from his pro -Labour childhood in 1920s Auckland through to his inevitable downfall in 1984.
From the writer of the controversial hit The Hollow Men and director David Lawrence.
and in The Pit Bar...
The Pit was defintely the cosiest little bar in Wellington last week, and proved to be the perfect place to shelter from the winter chill! Now that it's a bit warmer this week, come on in and make a night of it!
TUESDAY 16th AUGUST
Opening night for Chalk, plus happy hour from 5.30pm.
WEDNESDAY 17th AUGUST
Another happy hour from 5.30pm!
SATURDAY 20th AUGUST
Closing nights for Chalk and Glorious - should be a big one...
Win cool stuff!
Was Robert Muldoon really NZs most evil Prime Minister ever? To be in to win a double pass to the opening of slouching toward bethlehem and find out, simply tell me your favourite fictional evil leader. For me it's a tie between Darth Vader and Sauron. I'm a geek...
Congrats to last weeks winner Julia Capon who will be joining us for the opening night of Chalk. Awesome!
