Strap on your codpiece...

Spellbinding tragi-comedy Battle of the Bastards has been picked up for New Zealand International Comedy Festival seasons and a tour of Canada. So.... It's fundraiser time!

To celebrate we are putting on a special night at The Court Theatre. 7pm, Sunday 17th Feb.

Imagine if King Lear was a comedy, told by a carnie. Then imagine that carnie is David Ladderman (Loons Circus Theatre Company, NBR New Zealand Opera, Court Theatre). And that he's been let loose on the city's most celebrated stage...
Imagine no more, this is for real.

Stand Up For Bastards Fundraiser will be a joyride of juggling, mentalism and comedy, followed by the only Christchurch performance of the Battle of the Bastards before it takes off on tour.

"A polished, spellbinding performance from someone who knows how to work the crowd to perfection... Brilliant fun" -Nelson Arts Festival review, Nelson Mail

"If you like Shakespeare, you should go. If you don't like Shakespeare you should definitely go" -Facebook fan
