Four Flat Whites on tour
Roger Hall’s hugely successful comedy, Four Flat Whites in Italy hits the road on a national tour in May and June with an afternoon performance in Palmerston North on May 20.
It promises huge laughs and an evening of fun in 28 venues around the country.
Venice! Rome! Tuscany! It’s 2007 and, guide book in hand, retired librarians Alison and Adrian, are excitedly embarking on their long-awaited and carefully saved-for Italian trip of a life-time.
But when their best friends pull out at the last moment, they find themselves sharing their precious holiday with their neighbours – Harry, a wealthy plumber, and his new wife Judy.
As these delightfully mismatched couples valiantly negotiate the pit-falls of a later-in-life OE, it’s not just the Italians the intrepid travellers have to deal with – it’s also each other.
Adrian and Alison have a dark secret that is causing them some strife and Harry, who loves his rugby, has a dream. But there are surprises in store.
Will the trials and tribulations of their cherished Italian sojourn make or break our Kiwi quartet? Will the holiday be heaven or hell, or both?
Blending one-liners with lots of laughs and astute observations Four Flat Whites in Italy is classic Roger Hall as he again deftly satirises our manners, morals, loves and lusts in this highly-entertaining treat.
This season of Four Flat Whites in Italy sees some fabulous new faces in the line-up, bringing together a great cast of talented Kiwi actors.
Fresh from their tour of Grease, Palmerston North’s Paul Barrett and Lyndee-Jane Rutherford will be joined by Phil Grieve and Hilary Norris and directed by the unstoppable talent, Geraldine Brophy.
Four Flat Whites in Italy is presented at the Regent on Broadway on May 20 at 4pm. Bookings at TicketDirect.
