A COVID-19 update from Circa

Going out in style!

“…A triumph for all involved” – Hawkes Bay Today

“You’re going to love it – go see it.” Broadwayworld NZ

“Just brilliant… So many laughs from beginning to end … his best ever!!!”

Undoubtedly our most successful and popular playwright, Sir Roger Hall has been making us laugh at ourselves for over five decades. His latest outstanding comedy pays a glowing tribute to the holders of the Super Gold card.

Boomers Barry and Gen are now enjoying retirement and, having celebrated their Golden Wedding, are facing the dilemmas that come with age – failing health and the death of friends. Should they go to London to visit their long distant grandchildren? Will they qualify for insurance?

Should they downsize? And is there too much damn clutter in their lives?

Starring our most celebrated actors Ginette McDonald and Peter Hayden in this sharp, poignant, funny two-hander.

“…wonderfully perceptive and insightful …”

“…the script was sparkling, full of heart, tenderness and joy…”

‘… quite simply, another ROGER HALL great night out!’ — A Shortcut to Happiness

‘He is uncanny in picking up exactly the thing that the audience wants to talk about’ — Alison Quigan
