Tempest's Two Bros is showing in Wellington next week

Up-and-coming playwright Monica Reid joins forces with Tempest Wellington’s Emma Maguire to devise Two Bros*, a charming contemporary piece staged at S&M’s Cocktail and Lounge Bar on Cuba Street this 16-19th of October.

All is well when proud tycoon Cevin (with a “C”) bonds with modest sheep-shearer Mike, until they discover they both travelled to Wellington to fiend for the love of delightful innovator-slash-bar-manager Lina. This tale promises a rainbow-themed evening of high jinks oozing with sex appeal. Loosely based on 18th-century Italian comedy “La Locandiera”, Two Bros* encapsulates the hopeful quirks of Kiwi culture while breaking down the barriers of machismo and celebrating the different types of love that exist.

Showing dates and times:
Wednesday 16th October – 7.30pm
Thursday 17th October – 6.30pm
Friday 18th October – 7.30pm
Saturday 19th October – 7.30pm

Scotty & Mal’s Cocktail & Lounge Bar
176 Cuba Street
