“A Night at the Theatre”
July 31st – August 10th, Gryphon Theatre

For the first time in many years, we’re bringing you an exciting lineup of one-act plays – including two plays written by New Zealand playwrights.

Black Comedy Service, Please!
directed by Neil Haydon and Oliver Mander directed by Cameron Lines

Black Comedy is a farce, featuring a reversed lighting set: when the lights are ‘on’, we see nothing but darkness; when they are ‘off’, we see the characters behaving as if they were in a black-out. Brindsley, a sculptor, has invited a millionaire to see his work…a short circuit wrecks the evening.

Service Please! is an original script by New Zealand author, Cameron Lines.  It sets out a “slice of life” within a busy hospitality business.  Wellington Repertory is proud to support this chance to showcase a NZ author and their work.
