Meet at Glover Park. Walk to Eli’s bedroom. Take your seats. Witness: Two boys, hanging out, drinking beers, riffing on Wellington, popular culture and girls. The death of their friend sparks a journey to Jerusalem, and the bedroom becomes a car, the North Island, and James. K Baxter’s grave.

The Intricate Art of Actually Caring is a new script by New Zealand playwright Eli Kent (2008 Chapman Tripp winner – Outstanding New Playwright of the Year for Rubber Turkey). A comedy about apathy, it tells the story of two young poets on a trip to Jerusalem to see the grave of our nation’s greatest poet. It explores James K. Baxter's prophecy of a country void of love, asking - has what he preached come to pass?

A two man show, the story is told through narration, poetry and original music to explore the themes of masculinity, growing up, death and loss.
