Nextstage Theatre Presents 'Desperate HuttWives'

Nextstage Theatre presents Desperate HuttWives

29TH NOV – 9th DEC 7.30pm (special 4pm Matinee on the 9th)

Hutt Old Boys Marist Rugby Club, Myrtle St, Lower Hutt


13th – 16th DEC 7.30pm (special 4pm Matinee on the 16thth)

Hannah Playhouse, 12 Cambridge Terrace, Wellington

By Louise Proudfoot

Directed by Geraldine Brophy


Set in Upper Hutt, this brand-new comedy. Written by local playwright, Louise Proudfoot throws us through a ranch slider and into a dizzying romp of neighborhood BBQs, extra marital affairs and unhealthy doses of Detonating Gonad-itis.

Seven Kiwi plumbers, hairdressers, mums, electricians, mechanics and beauty therapists, juggle beer and bubbly with pottles of mussels, and plates of brie and crackers, as they confuse their fantasy lives with reality and ponder the up side of a K Mart in Petone …

Come join Lisa and Leo, Sharon and Shane, Chrissie and Caleb, and the single Roxie as they tear each other’s’ lives apart and try to reconstruct them, with nothing but soap operas and their base instincts to guide them.

Don’t miss this hilarious “over the fence” peek at suburban life in the Valley. “Desperate HuttWives” is a must for your Christmas function or a fun night out with your mates. Drinks and nibbles available.
