A delightful line-up of witty performances to make you laugh out loud! This unique event will open with one of New Zealand’s best-loved performance poets Greg O’Connell, presenting highlights from his Lines Out Loud show. He will be followed by a set of award-winning short comedies by Nataliya Oryshchuk, including finalists of the Playwrights Association of New Zealand competitions 2015 and 2016.

Greg O’Connell will share freshly-written pieces from his forthcoming book Megabyte & Other Poems (Clerestory Press, 2017), and take audience participation to new heights in a humorous roller-coaster of rhyme, rhythm, and refrain.

NO Productions Theatre Collective will present three satirical, sharp, yet deeply-humane plays Token of Friendship, The Lifecycle of Refrigerators and Cactus Instructor directedby Nataliya Oryshchuk and performed by the talented local actors Joanna Prendergast, Sophie Rea, Gwilym Wogan, Greg Hubbard and Daniel Collins.

Token of Friendship has featured at various theatre festivals in Sydney, Queenstown, Wanaka and Arrowtown, and was recently published in a collection of New Zealand plays Stage Journeys (2016), yet has rarely appeared on a Christchurch stage. The other two plays will be world premieres, with The Lifecycle of Refrigerators already booked for Oamaru later this year. Cactus Instructor is a brand-new script, just weeks old!

Come along with family and friends to enjoy this one-of- a-kind, lyrical and theatrical Christchurch performance. Not to be missed!
