This acclaimed solo is having a Tāmaki Makaurau comeback after featuring in this years Pride Festival offerings at The Basement Theatre and a Kia Mau Festival Season at BATS Theatre. Nau mai ki Te Pou Reon Bell!
What reviewers have said: “Bell…is excellent in this solo play. He plays the comedy without losing the human truth, and plays the truth without ever losing the heart. It’s a solo that you’re actually stoked to be watching, rather than sitting there admiring. You’ll leave wanting to see whatever Bell does next.” Sam Brooks, Spinoff
“I FOUND THE SHOW TO BE A WONDERFUL ORCHESTRATION OF THEATRICAL ELEMENTS. THE SHOW IS FUN, AT TIMES FEELING LIKE I WAS ON A MUSICAL ROAD TRIP THROUGH MT ROSKILL. THE PERFORMANCE IS CHARMING, ENGAGING, AND AT MOMENTS, HONEST AND TOUCHING.”
