Wild Blue Yonder

The_Wild_Blue_Yonder.jpg

An autobiographical NZ play with boy on boy, and hetero action. Well written by a couple of local friends, a gay artist played by Duncan Allan and a solo mum poet played by Maxine Fleming, in the Summer of 1999 to the sounds of Dusty Springfield.

Verity George has been type cast as their best friend Poppy the cafe owner who dislikes Tom Sainsbury's itinerant character Duane, a dubious butch thief. Up and coming actor Edwin Beats plays Luke the new romantic poet. It's a great combination of funny and poignant.

Directed by Andrea Kelland.

Now till 14 February, 8pm, $25/$20
