This event has probably been and gone!
The year is 1997 and Go Away Travel agency are preparing for their end of year Christmas party. Desks have been decorated, glasses are filled to the brim with middle shelf Chardonnay and the team are ready to let loose.
Linda Harwood - the agency’s charismatic yet inept leader - is keen to show her employees a good time. However, she is harbouring a secret that may dampen the evening’s festivities. What will this ill-timed Yuletide revelation do to a drunken party of co-workers who barely like each other when they’re sober?
Directed by Leon Wadham
Written by Rose Matafeo and Alice Snedden.
Featuring Brynley Stent, Byron Coll and Kura Forrester.
Irreverent and subversive, The Basement Christmas Show has evolved from a low-key fundraiser to one of Auckland’s must-do Christmas offerings, described in 2016 by the New Zealand Herald as “as much of an Auckland holiday season staple as Franklin Rd Lights and the Santa Parade”. As the theatre’s only fundraiser, all profits from our Christmas show go into our development programmes for artists, so audience members get the warm Christmas fuzzies, as well as a stonking great night out!
