FINAL WEEK! SELLING FAST!

A searing NZ political thriller

It’s election night and a fledgling new party led by the charismatic and idealistic Aria Robson clinches one seat in Parliament. That same night, an intern comes to her with a scandal that could sink the party by morning. Aria must decide what or who she is willing to sacrifice for her ambitions.

A timely work by the talented young playwright Sam Brooks (The Spinoff) that highlights the tensions between integrity, the power of spin and the hazards of being a woman in the unforgiving world of politics.

Burn Her was short-listed for the Adam NZ Play Award 2017 and had a sell-out production at Q Theatre in 2018.

Starring: Kali Kopae, Sophie Hambleton, Andrew Laing, Lara Macgregor, Jean Sergent &  Dryw McArthur

Play of the year. No question. Play for the ages. Sadly. But most definitely. Burn Her is a triumph to – and for – all involved. An utterly brilliant piece of work.” – Simon Sweetman, Off The Tracks

“Remarkably assured, richly textured, and refreshingly contemporary, Burn Her does exactly what good theatre should do. It’s not eat-your-greens art, it’s great entertainment.” – Annabella Gamboni, Art Murmurs

Burn Her distils the big themes of political intrigue with insight, flair, withering wit and a welcome humanity. This is a must-see production in every respect and I’d advise you to book early.” – John Smythe, Theatreview

“Brooks has done a humdinger of a job… a wryly observed dissection of where humanity comes into politics – and life in general – with women at the centre.” – Dionne Christian, NZ Herald review

Please Note: Burn Her includes coarse language and reference to sexual harm. If you would like more information, do not hesitate to ask the Box Office staff.
