Win a dou­ble pass to Per­plex play

Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - STAFF RE­PORTER

An award-win­ning Ger­man play­wright’s ‘‘per­plex­ing’’ com­edy will be per­formed for the first time to Kiwi au­di­ences.

We have a dou­ble pass to give­away to the Silo The­atre Com­pany’s per­for­mance of Per­plex on Novem­ber 12, 8pm.

Writ­ten by Mar­ius von Mayen­burg, the play is de­scribed as ‘‘an ab­sur­dist de­con­struc­tion of re­al­ity, iden­tity and the­atre it­self’’. It pokes fun at ev­ery­thing from life in the dig­i­tal age to con­tem­po­rary re­la­tion­ships and un­der­stand­ing our place in the world. From the ap­pear­ance of an elk, Ni­et­zsche and a Nazi to nude dis­cus­sions of Dar­win – this is one hell of a mind ben­der.

Per­plex first pre­miered Ber­lin in 2010 and was later trans­lated into English and per­formed by the Syd­ney The­atre Com­pany in 2014.

The show fea­tures a stel­lar cast in­clud­ing Natalie Med­lock ( Short­land Street) Sam Sned­den ( The Book of Ev­ery­thing) and in their Silo de­buts Nic Samp­son ( Funny Girls) and Kura For­rester ( Be­lief: The Pos­ses­sion of Janet Moses).

Per­plex runs from Novem­ber 10 to De­cem­ber 3 at Auck­land Live’s Herald The­atre.

To en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion email with your name, sub­urb and phone num­ber by Novem­ber 6. Please put ‘Per­plex’ in the sub­ject line. Note: this play in­cludes an abun­dance of nu­dity and strong ob­scen­i­ties.

Per­plex is show­ing at Auck­land Live’s Herald The­atre un­til De­cem­ber 3.
