Emmett Woodhouse, handsome, clever and rich, with a comfortable home and a gay disposition has lived nearly [redacted] years in the world with very little to distress or vex him.

Until now.

Em is a queer retelling of Jane Austen’s masterwork Emma by award-winning playwright Sam Brooks, turned around, flipped and set in our very own Queenstown. Em won the Dean Parker Adaptation Award at the 2023 Adam New Zealand Play Awards. This reading is a fundraiser for Lads on the Island, premiering at Circa Theatre in February.

Starring Carrie Green, Gavin Rutherford, Simon Leary, Bronwyn Ensor (Lads on the Island), Ian Blackburn (After the Party), Jean Sergent (Burn Her), Jonny Potts (The Best Show in Town is at Your Place Every Night), and Sam Brooks himself as Em.
