by James Cabot.  Directed by Doug Clarke

Since colonization, NZ has produced a gene pool of misfits.

In this original NZ play the local author has interwoven events and voices of our past heritage into mystical threads which evokes and combines drama theatrically.

Provocateurs interrogate a heretic (?) which reveals, discovers, and enlightens

Ages are irrelevant, can be played young or old, or a mix of all three.

Must be flexible, and able to move relatively well.


MERCY – the heretic (?)

AGNES  - lead provocateur

AMY  –    subordinate provocateur

The Importance of Being Belinda

by John Garforth.  Directed by Christina Stachurski


The feminist Sapphire Theatre Collective is in final rehearsal for Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Importance Of Being Earnest’. Wilde’s script has been revised and updated to cater for an all-female cast by Belinda. The opening is in doubt as Belinda has been arrested for gross indecency on stage during a previous performance, but the show must go on!
