Station to Station (starring Antonia Prebble) goes to the South Island

The Top of the South Arts Touring and Passenger presents

STATION TO STATION is a theatrical hit crackling with wit and intelligence by Bruce Mason Award winning playwright,
Michael Galvin.

When was the last time you saw New Zealand’s ‘star’ actors in a play that made you think and laugh, and held you spellbound?

North Island audiences who saw Station to Station in 2011 said…

” Absolute quality acting. Loved the deep layers of the story.”

” … Donogh Rees’ laugh and lines are particularly memorable …”

” Well written, well constructed and well acted, one of the best plays I have seen.”

“Enjoyed it very much. Provoked lots of stimulating discussion in the car on the way home.”

“Awesome! Fantastic! Thought provoking.”

Station to Station is the first of Michael’s plays to tour the South Island and is made possible through Creative New Zealand funding.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to enjoy New Zealand theatre at its finest.

Not to be missed!

Wednesday’s Outrageous Fortune talk at the Auckland Museum:

Wednesday night’s conversation with cast and crew from Outrageous Fortune provided some intriguing insights into the series and how great television is made. Writer Rachel Lang described the relationship between Van (Ant Starr) and Munter (Tammy Davis) as the “greatest love story” of the show. Character development was also discussed with Tammy describing an early conversation with a director who provided a character sketch of Munter: “his name is Munter and he is always munted”.

Director Simon Bennett said the cast and crew of Outrageous Fortune were able to create great television because of the high level of trust on set. After the talk some of the fans in the audience managed to grab a few photos and signatures.

Next week’s line-up of actor Robyn Malcolm, director Britta Johnstone and editor Nic Smith will discuss the best and strangest moments behind the scenes on Outrageous Fortune.
