Welcome to the Third Waiheke Playwrights' Festival.
Sat 12 April: 7:30pm
Sun 13 April: 2:00pm
Once again we have something new: eight ten-minute plays fitted neatly into a two-hour show. That's eight Waiheke writers, eight Waiheke directors, and 34 parts all played by Waiheke actors. So sit back and enjoy a feast of local talent!
I can't begin to tell you what the plays are all about: two musicians, a locum doctor, a library with only one book, boutique holiday accommodation, the Internet and some stuffed animals -- and that's just the first half!
Then there's a stranger washed up on the shore, a whale, identities being mistaken all over the place, a pair of lost suitcases, a New Year's eve party, and a fishing trip with a whopping big catch.
And at the end of it all, you get to vote for your favourite. The writer of the winning play will get the Tivoli Bookshop Prize, while the actors and director will share the Upcycle Award.
Seat belts are recommended - it's going to be one roller-coaster of a ride!
Doors and cafe open 30min earlier.
Tickets $15 general / $10 concession.
