Balling. Boffing. Bushwhacking. Getting laid. Its all sex. And there's so much to say about sex. Last Tapes Theatre Company presents the debut season of Mating in Captivity by Oliver Page, as part of the 2016 First Steps season. It's whip smart, it's funny, it's about sexual subtext and you can't spell subtext without butt-sex.

Annie and Rob are getting engaged. Or got engaged and their engagement party is tonight. But on their way out the door they get a call. It's Jacob, Rob's old school friend. He needs a place to stay.

In spite of his future wife's plea for privacy, Rob invites Jacob to bunk down with them in their teeny tiny, rinky dink central Auckland apartment.

What follows is a screwball comedy that brilliantly and viciously cuts to the quick of some pretty important questions about liberal ideals and middle-class morality.

In characteristic Last Tapes fashion Mating in Captivity brings together a team of some of the coolest, newest young creatives. This is Oliver Page’s debut as a playwright, he’s better known as a writer and director with Candlelit Pictures (We Talk About Loss, Runaways).

Mating in Captivity showcases the emerging directing talents of Renée Lyons, seen on TV in Filthy Rich, 800 Words and on stage in numerous plays and comedy shows, including her own show Tinderella in the NZ International Comedy Festival.

Starring Milo Cawthorne (Deathgasm, Once in Chanuk Bair, 360), Frith Horan (The Tempest, Benedict Cumberbatch Must Die) and Jack Buchanan (Jekyll and Hyde, Long Ago Long Ago, Servant of Two Masters).

Writer: Oliver Page

Director: Renée Lyons

Designers: Poppy Serano and Rachel Marlow
