“A quite incredible triumph” – Off The Tracks (16 May 2018)

The Great Leader is having a nap. Boris and Stephan guard his room with revolutionary zeal.

But wasn’t he supposed to be awake by now? The Great Leader’s Wife says wake him! The Great Leader’s General says let him sleep!

And doesn’t The Great Leader sleep with a gun?

Comedy with a bang in the tradition of Tom Stoppard, Armando Iannucci and Monty Python.

Problems is a highly relevant hilarious high dive into a world of demagogues, mixed messages and Big Brother.

Two of New Zealand’s best and brightest comedy talents tackle this thumping new play from one of New Zealand’s finest comedy writers.

Witty, silly, relevant.
