Lovers of Central ParkFringe Review: Lovers of Central Park - 'Lovers of Central Park' takes its audience on a walk exploring romantic love. In keeping with its theme, it is beautiful theatre. The audience is guided along the wooded paths of Wellington's Central Park constantly discovering moments from some ten different stories of lovers - relationships occuring within that space, in times ranging from 1855 to beyond the present day. See... Scoop Review: Lovers of Central Park

The Bowler HatFringe Review: Lyndon Hood On 'The Bowler Hat' - There was a hold-up with the programmes - they were only distributed shortly before the beginning of the show. Which is a shame, because The Bowler Hat is the kind of play that benefits from being explained in advance... Having struggled my way to an approximate understanding of this purpose by watching the actual play, this doesn't help me understand why it was worthwhile. See... Fringe 07 Review: The Bowler Hat

Summer Shakespeare Review: Lyndon Hood On 'As You Like It' - For its 25th production, Wellington's Summer Shakespeare has returned to what some consider its natural location - The Dell at the Botanic Garden. And it has given us the kind of entertaining ensemble production that seems to be the Summer Shakpeare's goal. See... Summer Shakespeare Review: As You Like It

    Binoy Kampmark: Rot In The Civil Service: Farewelling Mike Pezzullo

    There was no better example of Australia’s politicised public service than its Home Affairs Secretary, Mike Pezzullo. In most other countries, he would have been the ideal conspirator in a coup, a tittletattler in the ranks and bound to brief against those he did not like. Give him a dagger, and he was bound to use it... More

    Ramzy Baroud: The Palestinian Cause Belongs To The World

    At one time, the ‘Arab-Israeli Conflict’ was Arab and Israeli. Over the course of many years, however, it was rebranded. The media is now telling us it is a ‘Hamas-Israeli conflict.’ But what went wrong? Israel simply became too powerful... More

    Ian Powell: Will Tennessee Threaten NZ's Medical Workforce?

    Our medical workforce crisis is primarily driven by uncompetitive remuneration. There is a massive over 60% specialist pay gap with Australia. Not only do we lose specialists (and doctors training to be specialists) across the Tasman, but we also can’t compete with Australia to recruit specialists from other countries. This pay gap is the greatest obstacle to addressing the specialist workforce shortages in our public hospitals... More

    Vijay Prashad: The Savagery Of The War Against The Palestinian People

    Who knows how many Palestinian civilians will be killed by the time this report is published? Among the bodies that cannot be taken to a hospital or a morgue, because there will be no petrol or electricity, will be large numbers of children. They will have hidden in their homes, listening to the sound of the Israeli F-16 bombers coming closer and closer, the explosions advancing toward them like a swarm of red ants on the chase... More
