Controversial new play on climate change makes NZ debut:
Between Two Waves

Following its critical success in Sydney and Adelaide Between Two Waves will debut in New Zealand at Auckland’s Herald Theatre from 4 to 15 August. This romantic comedy about juggling love during an impending climate change disaster is certain to spark debate on the ride home after the show.

“…a gently unsettling portrait of the times we live in.” – Sydney Morning Herald

Between Two Waves is an urgent and searching new play about arguably the most pressing issue of our time. Penned by Australian playwright and actor Ian Meadows, the play debuted in 2012 at Sydney’s Griffin Theatre to rave reviews and captivated audiences.

Daniel – a climatologist and advisor to the government – who having lost a lifetime of research in the worst floods New Zealand has witnessed, isn’t in the mood for appreciating the irony of what he should have predicted. When his partner Fiona tells him they’re about to start a family, Daniel must choose between what he knows and what he loves. Between Two Waves asks an anxious, warming world: how do we find happiness in the face of an uncertain future?

Almighty Johnsons actor Emmett Skilton returns from Los Angeles to star in the play, alongside Go Girls actress Shara Connolly. Acclaimed actor and director Peter Feeney returns to the theatre to direct this production after a ten year hiatus. Feeney was compelled to take the directors seat after reading the script “It’s rare outside of Shakespeare to find the personal and the political so adroitly combined. It’s a project I had to be part of from the moment I first read the play.” Feeney also plays the role of Daniel’s boss.

Produced by Leanne Frisbie, the director of ethical Auckland PR agency Passion PR, the New Zealand production will be set here thanks to re-writes by the playwright. Frisbie, who plays the role of a stressed out insurance adjustor in the play, saw Between Two Waves at its premiere in Sydney and was so moved by it she immediately approached Meadows to get the rights for New Zealand. “It was one of those life-defining moments when I saw this play. I just knew it had to come to NZ – it carries such a powerful message about climate change and yet it’s not preachy,” Frisbie says.

“…Between Two Waves boldly takes on some incredibly profound questions. The result is a work of immense and lasting impact.” – Time Out, Sydney

Between Two Waves is sponsored by fitness experts Les Mills, a brand that is passionate about reducing environmental impacts. A highly-experienced crew including set designer Jessika Verryt and lighting designer and production manager Nik Januerik will bring their expertise to the Herald Theatre production of Between Two Waves, which will use special effects with water to create the climate change disaster back drop.

Between Two Waves plays:
Tuesday 4 to Saturday 15 August, (Tues – Thurs 7.30pm, Fri & Sat 8pm, and matinee performance Saturday 8 August, 2pm) at Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre.
Tickets*: Adult $35.00 Concession $30.00 Groups 4+ $30.00 Preview or matinee performances $25.00
