PAUA – an exciting new comedy thriller from the award winning Wellington based SEEyD Theatre Company opens the 2008 season at Downstage Theatre. Playing in Wellington from 19 January to 16 February, the production deals with the topical problem of paua poaching in New Zealand with humour and robust theatricality. According to the Ministry of Fisheries the theft and illegal sale of paua is an issue particularly around the lower North Island, including Wellington’s south coast.

As in their recent productions, including critically acclaimed “Turbine” and “The Brilliant Fassah”, Director Tim Spite, a passionate paua diver himself, and his team once again tackle a topical issue with a high priority on the political agenda. The SEEyD Theatre Company is known for their meticulous research and attention to detail. With PAUA they present a new site-specific play at Downstage Theatre, Wellington’s longest running professional theatre, which utilises the entire venue space. Set in the small town of Waiwhero, it is part environmental wake-up call, part whodunit, part thriller and part slasher movie.

PAUA is playing at Downstage Monday to Wednesday at 6.30 pm and Thursday to Saturday at 7.30 pm. There will be a $20 preview on the 18 January and additional $20 performances on the 22 & 23 January. Saturday afternoon matinees will be on Saturday 2 & 9 February. Ticket prices range from $39 for a full price ticket, $30 for a concession and $20 for a student standby ticket. Special group discounts apply. Tickets can be purchased online, at Downstage’s box office or by phone at 04 801 6946.
