Presents the NZ Debut of:

By Mark Ravenhill

Failed Assassination Attempts / New Age Strippers / Techno Music / Russian Go-Go Boys / Corporate Anarchists / AIDS Cocktails / Horny Ghosts / Beautiful Bodies / Abusive Lovers / Business Execs on the Rampage / Lots and Lots of E... WELCOME TO HAPPY NATION!

From the celebrated and controversial writer of 'Shopping and F*cking'

Nick just got out of jail after 15 years locked in and finds his former girlfriend, Helen, buried in a job they both used to despise when they were younger. Tim is sick and spends his time buying new toys on the internet: his latest item is a Russian go-go dancer named Victor. Nadia is a stripper who's abused by her lover and is in constant search of enlightenment. And Jonathan, who works for the government, is very, very pissed off.

This is Mark Ravenhill's most accomplished play, populated with the familiar gallery of criminals, junkies, sex-workers and psychotics who are Ravenhill's heroes. It delves into the zeitgeist and finds an era where political and personal clash in a slow motion car crash involving AIDS, lapdancing and high ambition.

Ravenhill said: "Some people may be put off by the sexually explicit nature of the play but when sex is sold to us in so many places today, theatre may be the last place where it can still hold any meaning."

CAST: Andrew Ford, Roberto Nascimento, Edward Newborn, Lucy McCammon, Rashmi Pilapitiya & Robert Tripe.

"There are few stage authors writing more interestingly than Mark Ravenhill... He is - it is now yet more evident - a searing, intelligent, disturbing sociologist with a talent for satirical dialogue and a flair for sexual sensationalism" (Financial Times)
