Tim FitzHigham in ‘The Gambler’

Tim FitzHigham is a man who loves a challenge - he once rowed the English Channel in a bathtub. Recently, Tim spent a year lost to ‘gambling archaeology’ recreating the harebrained bets of his gentlemen adventurer forebears inspired by centuries old ‘betting books’ to be found in the archives at their revered private clubs . The result is this show about the 10 'greatest' bets in history, ‘The Gambler’.
For his efforts, Tim partially severed his finger, broke a rib, fractured a toe and put his house up for sale. What damage will his debut in New Zealand inflict?
