Holed up on Hope Street during lockdown, five flatmates while away the time telling tall tales every night… for 48 Nights.
Inspired by the spirit of Giovanni Bocaccio’s The Decameron, the storytelling epic written in the 14th century as the Plague was sweeping through Europe, ATC brings together five of Aotearoa’s most exciting young writers and a diverse company of actors and musicians to create a direct theatrical response to this moment.
Seated on the ASB Waterfront stage, the audience will get to experience a wild night of storytelling, song and music up close and personal in a cosy living room-style setting. Join us for this rare onstage opportunity and help celebrate the power and joy of live theatre.
Dentons Kensington Swan presents Back on the Boards, celebrating the return of live theatre.
Auckland Theatre Company’s return to ASB Waterfront Theatre stage will feature a remount of the beloved and award winning Still Life With Chickens by D.F. Mamea, a show that steals hearts wherever it is performed around the world. The highly acclaimed play Black Lover by Stanley Makuwe, the premiere season of which sold out during the 2020 Auckland Arts Festival but was cut short by the global pandemic, will also be remounted. Back on the Boards also features a brand new work 48 Nights on Hope Street, a direct and exciting response to this time from a diverse company of young writers, actors and musicians.
Three brilliant New Zealand works celebrate good people, profound relationships and what it means to be human. Come and see one, two or all three shows to once again enjoy a stellar night out at the theatre.
