Fault, by Sam Fisher; director: Marilyn Ollett

Qualified for the South Island Regional Festival on 6 and 7 June.

Swiss Cider, by André Surridge; director: Garry Thomas, assisted by Sarah Coursey


New Zealander Christine is a professional actor working in Britain, and on the verge of making it big on the West End. Yet her life could so easily have ended by her own hand while a teenager living in the Waikato. "Swiss Cider" tackles the difficult subject of teenage suicide using flashbacks to recall how Christine survived the pressures of her earlier life.
Written at a time when New Zealand had the highest suicide rate in the Western world, Surridge’s exploration of teen angst picked up the 1995 Minolta Playwrights' Association of New Zealand playwriting competition.

Desperate and Dateless, by Neil Troost; director: Kris Vavasour


Appearances are everything, especially when you are running a dating agency - or for that matter, if you want to get a date. Roger enters Camilla’s dating agency to “find himself a woman” and meets severe criticism. Will Roger really convince Camilla to have dinner with him, or will her business-like attitude prevail? Join these two characters as they let their masks down.
