THE SURPRISE PARTY at Circa Theatre

Sales & Marketing Manager from Circa Theatre

A new summer comedy from Playwright and DomPost columnist Dave Armstrong (The Motor Camp) and directed by Conrad Newport

“The funniest stage-comedy I’ve seen in years…” Simon Sweetman, Off the Tracks

Doug Morris has been the sole MP of his tiny left-wing party for nine years. But when Beehive scandals and social media disasters hit both major parties, Doug and his ragtag list of hopeless candidates – including a bus driver who hates passengers and a transport spokesperson who doesn’t drive – are in serious danger of winning power. Doug is horrified – he knows what they’re like!

Eeling and Feeling

Sean from Akatarawa

This evening my partner was swimming in the river near our house. Some teenage boys came along, hunting eels. She spoke with them and said she liked having the eel(s) there. They said "the river is public" and proceeded to kill the eel in front of her. I am out of the area at the moment. I would like to find out who these boys are and speak to them about this incident, including my partner's feelings, and respect and consideration for others. Also, I don't know if these are long or short finned eels. Long finned eels are threatened, short are not. But mainly I am concerned about their disregard for my partner. They could easily have gone elsewhere at least. I am not out to "get" these kids, just confront them with their inconsideration and look at what could be done better. Do you know who these kids are? Want to talk? I don't really want a long comment thread and I probably won't reply to them. I just want to talk to the people involved.
