Auckland Theatre Company presents Like There’s No Tomorrow by The PlayGround Collective, a unique theatrical experience in which audiences are so immersed, they’re practically propping up the bar.
It’s the school after-ball. It’s cancelled. It’s illegal. And you’re invited.
Several weeks ago a student died at a party on the Shore. Drunk and daring, he dived off a roof into a swimming pool, but missed the pool. As a result of the tragedy, the after-ball has been banned. But, whatever – rules are made to be broken and Joseph’s friends are brewing up a night to remember. Some, though, just want to forget.
Based on an original concept by Auckland Theatre Company’s Associate Producer Lynne Cardy in partnership with The Playground Collective, and in the spirit of other highly popular, experiential theatre phenomena currently spanning the globe, including New York’s Sleep No More, multi-city theatre experience The Hotel Project, Sydney’s Lovely Ugly, and Auckland’s recent Sleepover, Like There’s No Tomorrow is a fully-immersive experience. A provocative, roving encounter. The after-ball to end all after-balls. At the party, audiences are invited to move from room to room, from scene to scene, to get up close with the characters and unlock their every secret. The party is outlawed; there’s definitely no time to sit still.
