Burn Her is setting fire to the capital this August with a sizzling behind-closed-doors peek at the storm of politics and PR spin.
The award-winning, smash hit NZ political thriller is celebrating its Wellington debut with a phenomenal and highly acclaimed cast and crew.
Burn Her is a searing script about charismatic and idealistic party leader Aria Robson who clinches one seat in Parliament. That same night, an intern comes to her with a scandal that could sink the party by morning.
A timely and whip-smart production from a powerful women-driven creative team.
