Mar 28th – Apr 9th
Gryphon Theatre
directed by Sandy Brewer with musical direction by Sue Windsor and choreography by Clinton Meneses

Ladies in Black is based on the 1993 novel The Women in Black by Madeleine St John. It is a ‘coming of age’ musical set in 1959 in the department store “Goodes”.

A shy teenager joins the staff of the women’s clothing department. Each staff member is on the precipice of change – facing independence, working for a living and what it means to be a woman.


Jun 3rd – 13th
Gryphon Theatre
directed by Tanya Piejus

Midnight in Moscow is a play about betrayal: betraying one’s country, betraying one’s wife, betraying one’s friends. Set in Moscow, 1947, spring, a world war has ended, a cold war beginning.

The play is inspired by James McNeish’s The Sixth Man, the absorbing biography of Paddy Costello, which briefly features New Zealand’s first woman ambassador and perpetual inebriate Jean McKenzie. Costello was said to have been a Soviet agent. But, really, who cares? It’s only ever men who carry on about it. Women have a much more honest and personal view of what constitutes treachery.


Jul 29th – Aug 8th
Gryphon Theatre
directed by Oliver Mander

Set in the Beverley Hills home of Tarantino-style, Oscar-winning, movie director Bruce Delamitri, Popcorn is a satirical comedy thriller that took the West End by storm. Notorious killers Wayne and Scout interrupt Bruce and Brooke Daniels (nude model and actress) intending to use Bruce’s ‘art’ as justification for murder. Events are disrupted with the arrival of Karl (Bruce’s producer) and Farrah Delamitri (Bruce’s soon-to-be-ex-wife) with spoilt daughter, Velvet. But Wayne means to succeed – whatever the cost.


Nov 18th – 28th
Gryphon Theatre
directed by Ewen Coleman

Wellington Repertory is proud to be producing the New Zealand premiere of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin!

Based on the best-selling novel by Louis de Bernieres, adapted by Rona Munro, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin is set on the Greek island of Cephalonia in 1941.  Captain Corelli, an enigmatic young Italian officer, is posted to the idyllic Greek island as part of the occupying forces.

The Captain soon discovers all of the complexities of love, and how it can blossom in the most unexpected and profound way.  The play highlights the brutal life and epic sweep of the soldiers caught up in the constantly changing politics of war.
