Criminal, Princess, Nerd, Jock, Freak…They’re ALL Losers

From prolific and multi award-winning local young playwright Thomas Sainsbury comes this hilarious pitch-black comedy, Loser.

The story of Glenwood High's ten-year reunion, Loser is a tale of failed dreams, painful memories and a giant school-shaped cake, revisiting high school traumas through the laugh-to-cringe experiences of six dysfunctional characters.

Liz, a suicidal moron, still believes she is in a relationship with the most popular boy in school. Clint is solely focused on sleeping with as many chicks as possible. Megan, the organiser of the reunion, has an outwardly perfect, inwardly crumbling life. Ryan just wants someone to remember his name. Judith needs to come to grips with her post-bursary mental breakdown. And Philip has a score to settle.

Featuring Serena Cotton (The Insiders Guide to Love), Stephen Fitzgibbon (Main Street, And Then You Die), Hannah Marshall (Milo's Wake, Amazing Extraordinary Friends, Shortland Street), Brett O'Gorman (Gary, Bad Jelly the Witch), Caren Pistorius and Benedict Wall (Outrageous Fortune).

Back after a sell-out run in 2007, Loser will be playing as part of the NZ International Comedy Festival 2008.

“Loser is a hilarious pitch black (/raw zit pink) comedy, emotionally-charged, over-the-top, but close to the bone” Theatreview
