“It’s très bien, très bien. This was pure satire, guaranteed to mildly offend pretty much everyone along the way, but in very good heart. It was a huge hit.” Lynn Freeman

Quelle Horreur!! The South Island run by the French?

This new political satire from Dave Armstrong, the award-winning writer of Niu Sila, The Tutor, King and Country and Kia Ora Khalid sees a British settled North Island (North Zealand) and a French colonised South Island (Le Sud).

Today Le Sud is a prosperous socialist country where people only work 30 hours a week,
enjoy long wine-fuelled lunches, and the popular Prime Minister, Francois Duvauchelle, is a renowned womaniser.

The English-speaking citizens of North Zealand are far less happy. North Zealanders work long hours for little reward, their free-market experiment ended in disaster, and race relations are at rock bottom. Starved of much-needed electricity, North Zealand lives in permanent recession.

Le Sud is the story of a delegation from North Zealand, led by Prime Minister Jim Petersen, who travel south to the beautiful chateau at Wanaka au lac to persuade their rich neighbours to provide them with cheap electricity.

Warning – this play contains many hilarious jabs at the political, sporting, religious, racial and cultural values that New Zealanders hold dear!
