Pat-A-Cake Productions Presents The Things We Do

Pat-A-Cake Productions Presents The Things We Do

National Tour – Wellington, Auckland, Waiheke Island, Hamilton and Palmerston North. Featuring Finn Johansson album release tour.

WINNER: Edgiest Show Nelson Fringe Festival 2015
WINNER: Best Actor Female Nelson Fringe Festival 2015

Pat-A-Cake Productions kicks off the second half of their national tour, of the award-winning, trolley-spinning physical comedy The Things We Do at BATS Theatre this October. After a sell out season in the 2015 Fringe Festival (at BATS) and a successful South Island tour, this vivacious one-woman show continues on delighting audiences throughout the North Island.

A one-woman physical comedy about the things we do in the supermarket, this show is a physical fiasco meta-theatrically pulled off by one delightful performer, Sarah Tuck, who ‘has the audience in the palm of her hand’ (Nelson Mail). With only a basket, and an ill-behaved trolley, The Things We Do links all the likely suspects of our real supermarket-enriched lives through absurdly realistic situations. To the beat of the classic 90’s supermarket playlist, it’s the things we do and the things we wish we could too!

Sarah Tuck is a Victoria University graduate who has had extensive experience in devising with her performance company, Pat-A-Cake Productions. She has a mesmerising character-switching, crowd connecting charm that sustains ‘trolley-loads of laughs’ for the whole hour. It’s a delightful and fast-paced combination of mime, physical theatre, trolley-tactics and unforgettable moments.

“What a fantastically funny woman she is” – Nelson Mail

“Tuck is undeniably fun to watch” – Theatreview

“A really enjoyable night” – Kaikoura Star

Touring along-side Pat-A-Cake is Finn Johansson, a Wellington based musician who has been rambling around Europe for the last year and a half, hypnotising crowds in living rooms, bars and theatres alike, including a sold out tour through Germany and Denmark with Irish sensations Keeva. Johansson performs a live acoustic set from his debut album before the show at most centres before going on to operate the sound for The Things We Do (which he also designed).

“It’s a double-bill bonanza like no other, combining Finn’s album release tour with The Things We Do just made sense – One Budget, two dreams” – Says the tour's Producer and Director, Bop Murdoch.

The two uniquely talented separate acts compliment each other keeping this show surprising, satisfying, cathartic, comedic and memorable! It will have you cracking up at your own trolley antics next time you hit the checkout queue.

North Island tour dates: Wellington, BATS Theatre 14-17th Oct; Auckland, Old Folks Association 22-24th Oct; Waiheke Island, Artworks Theatre, 25 &26th Oct; Hamilton, The Meteor, 27 & 28th Oct; Palmerston North, The Dark Room 29-1st November. For more details, see www.patacakeproductions.co.nz
