Iconic sporting moment meets theatre in The Second Test - set in a long-gone era in New Zealand history, when men were men and women made cups of tea.

It’s 1953, and the New Zealand Cricket Team has embarked on the maiden tour to South Africa, including 22 year-old fast bowler Bob Blair. On Christmas Eve disaster strikes in the form of a lahar down Mt Ruapehu, the infamous Tangiwai disaster. Amongst the 151 victims is Blair’s new fiancé, Nerissa Love.

The Second Test tells Blair’s story, one of the most famed in New Zealand sporting history. In cricketing circles the tale is legendary, full of drama, emotion and bravery.

"This one-man play showcases Jonny Brugh’s talent as an outstanding comic actor...and his ability to capture an authentic sense of the 1950s New Zealand male psyche." - Theatreview
