“The funniest stage-comedy I’ve seen in years…” Simon Sweetman, Off the Tracks


Be careful who you vote for … they might get in.

Doug Morris has been the sole MP of his tiny left-wing party for nine years. But when Beehive scandals and social media disasters hit both major parties, Doug and his ragtag list of hopeless candidates – including a bus driver who hates passengers and a transport spokesperson who doesn’t drive – are in serious danger of winning power. Doug is horrified – he knows what they’re like!

Playwright and DomPost columnist Dave Armstrong and director Conrad Newport (Niu Sila, Rita and Douglas, Le Sud) reunite for this wildly entertaining satire of New Zealand politics today.

‘Dave Armstrong – a lefty Wellington lightweight and potboiler playwright’ — Sir Bob Jones

‘Armstrong’s ability to write a drama that is both contemporary and universal in its themes puts him at the top of the league table of Kiwi playwrights’ — Elspeth Sandys, Listener
