White Rabbit Red Rabbit has global acclaim
Cracking comedy Stag Weekend continues its six-week season at Centrepoint Theatre this month to full houses and critical acclaim.
A stag party hunting trip to the Tararuas for four overconfident and underqualified city boys becomes increasingly dangerous – and hilarious – as they fumble towards discovering what it means to be a Kiwi bloke in 2016.
Later in May, Centrepoint launches its inaugural Plays With a Purpose season with headlining production, the internationally acclaimed White Rabbit Red Rabbit. The play is top secret. It has been sealed inside an envelope, and the actor performing it has never seen it. In fact, there is a new performer every night, and each of them have only been told three essentials: Do not Google this play. Prepare to impersonate an ostrich. Once you start, you must finish… no matter what. Some might call it a play. Wildly unpredictable and completely unforgettable, this ‘theatre entertainment meets social experiment’ is unlike anything, and will make you question everything.
Centrepoint Theatre will host a wide array of talent from Manawatu and beyond for White Rabbit Red Rabbit’s strictly limited two-week season, including: Geraldine Brophy (How To Murder Your Wife), Laura Daniel (Jono and Ben), Torum Heng (Go Girls), Laura Hill (Shortland Street), the Modern Maori Quartet’s Jamie McCaskill, and Sophie Hambleton (Westside)… with more to be announced.
Plays With a Purpose aims to provide a launchpad for discussion of some major issues facing us today. White Rabbit Red Rabbit plays alongside The Politician’s Wife by Angie Farrow and a reading of Anders Lustgarten’s Lampedusa.
