Three very distinctive new plays have been selected for Auckland Theatre Company's festival of new work The Next Stage. The annual work-in-progress public season will be held this year in the new ATC home base in Dominion Road.

The workshop process has produced some of the most exciting theatre premieres Auckland audiences have enjoyed over the last few years. Arthur Meek's On the Upside-down of The World, currently on a national tour, Dave Armstrong's hit Le Sud, Dave's adaptation of Sia Figiel's novel Where We Once Belonged and Geoff Chapple's Hatch have all been developed through TNS with Auckland premiere productions presented by ATC.
