Basement Theatre is Auckland’s culture-defining powerhouse - home to an artistic mixtape of theatre makers, dancers, visual artists, poets, musicians, comedians and everyone in between.

A play by Alex MacDonald. Directed by Matt Baker.
Featuring: Victoria Abbott, Angella Dravid, Zak Enayat, Jason Hodzelmans, Chye-Ling Huang, Hamish Parkinson, Ben Van Lier
