Bickerstaffe Road. Maungaturoto
A Festival of ONE ACT PLAYS
Four contrasting plays will be performed - something for everyone!
'The Argument' - written and directed by George Skelton.
This play is taken from Jane Mander's novel, ‘The Strange Attraction’ - possibly the least known of Jane Mander’s four New Zealand based books.
‘I Never Saw Another Butterfly’ - written by Celeste Raspanti, directed by Brittany Dyer
Based on the poem ‘The Butterfly’, this play is set in the Jewish Ghetto of Terezin. It is a beautiful and moving piece, based on the lives of children who experienced life and the hardships during these times.
‘The New Wing at Elsinore’ - written by St John Hankin, directed by Sue Skelton
A short, amusing sequel to ‘Hamlet’, in which there are complications when his friend later buys and builds additions on to the famous castle.
‘Trash and Treasure’ - written and directed by Maura Flower
Two sisters are having a garage sale to clear the last of their Mother’s belongings. Things are not always what they seem…
This is a whimsical exploration of the adage that ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure!’
