After sold-out houses at the 2017 Kia Mau Festival, Te Pūanga Whakaari Theatre Productions’ piece Friday’s Flock will return to Wellington at Circa Theatre this November.
Presented in partnership with Taki Rua, Friday’s Flock is a ‘bittersweet nod to our agricultural heart’ (Pantograph Punch, 2017). A one man show starring well-known performer Craig Geenty, Friday’s Flock follows the lives of the locals at ‘Saleyards Café, a real-life café next door to an agricultural saleyard in Feilding.
The 2018 Circa Theatre performance will see the development of an entirely new set, recreating a regional café within the Circa Two studio. The new staging is complete with pie warmer, tomato sauce bottles and a hearty serve of Kiwi charm.
Circa Theatre is excited to present an Audio Described performance and touch tour on Sunday 11th November. There will be a touch tour at 3.30pm and an audio described performance of Friday’s Flock at 4.30pm.
Audio description is the method of describing the non-verbal action in a play into headsets worn by blind and visually impaired audience members, so that they can have as complete a theatre experience as possible.
“Just saw this show tonight and it was amazing – definitely a must see. It was hilarious, it was sad, it was familiar, I loved it. I laughed; I cried; each of the characters was easy to identify as somebody I know or have met. If you have half a chance make a point of getting along to Fridays Flock – you won’t regret it” – Sharon Atkins
