Big men. Big suits. Big appetites. But who’s serving who? And who serves the servers?

This is the world of White Elephant, Barbarian Productions’ latest show, created and directed by award-winning Wellington theatre-maker Jo Randerson. From November 27-30 the doors of the Hannah Playhouse will be thrown open to the clowns, the crowns and the crowds for a comic four-day festival of feasts, fetes and farce exploring the dark divide between the 99 and the 1 percent.

White Elephant is a grandiose, grotesque performance that refuses to be confined to the stage. This season at Hannah Playhouse realises a vision that has been fastidiously explored and refined by Barbarian in two years of workshops and previews. Now more than a stand-alone theatre piece, this highly-anticipated show will sit at the heart of an expanded vision: the White EleFestival. The EleFestival’s programme of accessible, affordable imaginative post-show events gives audiences the option to expand their experience of the stage presentation.

Could you sing for your supper? When’s the right time to share what’s on your mind (or, for that matter, what’s on your plate)? Who decides value, anyway?

Find out for yourself. Join us at the table. Raise your glass and your voice at White Elephant.


The White EleFestival (post-show events)

8.45pm - Friday 28th November: The Feast of Ups and Downs ($65, includes entry to the show)
Join us for a feast. Dinner will be there, and so will you - the most important element on the menu.

8.45pm - Saturday 29th November: Sing for your Supper
Entry into the post-show supper is by song. Pick your tune, take that microphone in your brave hand and let her rip. Supper with our supper stars will be worth it …

3.15pm - Sunday 30th November – “Dear Maggie…” (bring a plate)
Grandparents, bring your grandchildren, and grandchildren, get your grandparents! We'd like you to come to our shared lunch and help us write a letter to Hon Maggie Barry, Minister of Senior Citizens, Conservation, and Arts, Culture & Heritage.
