“3 Piece, SWEET!”
Three one act plays will be presented:
"Horst Buchholz and Other Stories" by Matthew Wilkie
Directed by Maria-Jane Scannell
George and his friends enjoy taking part in their local pub quiz. They always bicker and never win. However, this time, for George, the stakes have been raised ... defeat is not an option.
"Dead Man Talking"
by Deborah Makarios
Directed by Colin McKinney and Aimee Borlase
Setting: a flat in Mayfair, New Years Eve, 1928. A quirky murder mystery by a New Zealand playwright, in which things may not be not as they seem...
"Cupboard Love" by Bev McConnell
Directed by Mark O’Connell
(In conjunction with Rangiora Players.)
Two women meet while out jogging along the Esplanade. They strike up a friendship as they discover they have lots in common; a love of food, a desire to lose weight and both have a new man in their lives.
Two of the plays, "Horst Buchholz and Other Stories" and "Dead Man Talking" are entered in this year’s NZ Theatre Federation One Act Play Festival. “Dead Man Talking” was also presented as a reading last year at The Forge. “Cupboard Love” comes via Rangiora Players, following a season there last month. So if you are a fan of the one acts, and looking for a fun night out, “3 Piece, SWEET!” is designed for you. At $12 per person, this is excellent value.
