Back in New Zealand after their huge success at La Mama in New York, award winning theatre company The Playground Collective in collaboration with Q Presents, promises to deliver on its title, giving Auckland audiences All Your Wants and Needs Fulfilled Forever in a night out at Q Loft, 9th – 19 th September.

Video games, porn and his pet rats; Simon successfully distracts himself from the recent death of his father using all the tools at his disposal – until a mysterious box arrives that promises to change his life forever. He will suffer. He will overcome. The Solution will be revealed. This might just be the one that cracks it …

From the team that brought you Like There’s No Tomorrow and The Intricate Art of Actually Caring; nominated for Five Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards, this existential comedy dissects the stories we all tell ourselves as we try to make meaning from the chaos. Written by The Playground Collective core-member Eli Kent (The Intricate Art of Actually Caring, Black Confetti) All Your Wants and Needs Fulfilled Forever attempts to do exactly what the title says by exploring how to make the perfect show and ensure audiences aren’t left disappointed.

Eli and director Robin Kerr recently took the show to New York City where they were given the largest venue in the New Zealand New Performance Festival New York where they earned a 4 ½ star review from The Public Review, New York . Now they have teamed up with producer Molly O’Shea, a core member of the elusive theatre company You Me Bum Bum Train, which had 80,000 Londoners scrambling for tickets in 2011. Together they are excited to bring All Your Wants and Needs Fulfilled Forever back to New Zealand and to its newest audience; Auckland. Performing in All Your Wants and Needs Fulfilled Forever will be the award winning writer himself Eli Kent, Joel Baxendale (Binge Culture Collective) and Victoria Abbott (Caterpillars, Ash vs. Evil Dead).

The Playground Collective is a New Zealand theatre company dedicated to developing innovative and imaginative theatre based on good storytelling. Since forming in 2007, they have produced nine shows which have won nine Chapman Tripp Awards, they are the Theatre Company to watch. Voted runner up ‘Best Theatre Company in Wellington’ in 2010 by the Capital Times and highly commended in Metro Magazine that same year, their work has toured extensively across New Zealand through various arts festivals, 16 regional centers through ‘Arts on Tour’, and most recently to New York as part of the New Zealand New Performance Festival New York.

“an exceptional work of theatre, striking the perfect balance between artifice and its acknowledgement; between emotionally affecting storytelling and uncomfortable humour; between literal narrative and visually poetic live art” - The Public Review, New York

“It defies both definition and expectation.” – Theatreview
