Why Does My Heart Feel Soupy. By Sarah Tuck, Amy Griffen-Brown and Michael Hebenton
A 15 min sketch about the undeniable pleasure in misheard lyrics.

Welkin’s World
Caroline Welkin has performed and presented stand-up and storytelling since 1997 in the Wellington region. Caroline will share her jaded world with you.

The Beginning of Stories. By Ingrid Saker
Don't you get overwhelmed by the number of stories surrounding you? We pretty much ARE stories and that's why they can get exhausting. Hopefully going all the way back to the beginning of time, to the very first cell, when stories came into existence, will be a pleasant refreshment.

On Growing Up in a Pacifist Household. By Ralph Johnson
A love of playing war & an abhorrence of real war: a paradox. How do I reconcile this? How has it shaped who I am?

I Made This For You. By Andrew Clarke
I've always thought I could be a great artist... I just need a little help.

Playwright. Written/directed by Audra Lord. Starring Deborah Eve Rea
Carla serves up coffee and a slice of domestic bliss gone wrong in this darkly comic look at the thin line between love and hate.

Obsidian. Written/directed by René Le Bas. Starring AJ Murtagh & Richard Dasan
A play about a high school-aged, closeted gay couple. Seth’s twin brother Greg, a narrow-minded jock who used to taunt his brother, has died. And at Greg’s wake, Seth’s partner Joe must remind his partner of the connection they share; knowing he can never have the same bond to Seth as his had to his twin brother.

Hairball. Written/directed by Pachali Brewster. Starring Hugo Randall, Bryony Langford, Gary French, Clarke Scrimshaw & Stuart Moore. Hairball constructor Elliot Blakely | Hair stylist Alex Cannon
A sentient, murderous ball of hair that gathers itself up across a barbershop floor and then kills people! Adapted from a short film script.
