Beautiful Losers August 22nd - September 8th

Beautiful Losers August 22nd - September 8th

"Brilliant masterclass for actors, directors, and storytellers.
Beautiful writing, deeply moving" - Ben Legg (Cracum)

"If you were ever a fan of Jack Kerouac or the Beats, a lover of 60s Counter Culture, or you just plain like good theatre, get two tickets to Beautiful Losers. You'll need someone on the other end of your enthusiasm when you leave this performance" - Gather & Hunt

"Margaret-Mary Hollins' stylish direction captures the wild, fragmented quality of Kerouac's writing while emphasising the historical context that gave birth to the Beat movement"
- NZ Herald 27 August 2012

Paul Glover and Scott Wills on the Good Morning Show TV1 9am this Wed 29th August
