Close to You is a new improvised theatrical offering from Wellington improv stalwarts Best on Tap. The show explores closeness, far-ness, and how distance impacts on people and relationships across all walks of life. Based on audience suggestions, these generous and intelligent improvisers shared a delightful show full of surprises to an adoring Thursday night crowd.
HOLE is a black comedy with a call for environmental sustainability. Set in 1986 Antarctica, HOLE is the story of Greenpeace activist Bonnie, atmospheric scientist Stella, Navy Seal Ioane, and the elephant in the room - a huge hole in the ozone. As ideologies collide we are reminded of the fragility of our planet, and the complex personal and political factors that distract us from protecting it as we should.

Is one person ever enough? Playwright Liam Coleman and director Tom Sainsbury ask audiences to consider this multi-layered question about our love lives with Play, a story of a gay man trying to figure out what’s right for him and whether that love can exist outside the bounds of traditional monogamy. They promise to reflect an “absolute true-to-life-ness” we can see in the people we know and the lives we live. Is this statement accurate? Well, sometimes.
