The future of cinema is at stake in this original show featuring some of Hollywood’s biggest names, with a twist; they’re all portrayed by a single actor.

Gift of the Gab is a devised show that combines film and theatre to tell the story of Gab, a young cinema worker who teams up with the legendary Sir Ian McKellen to stop Hollywood’s most deadly weapon – a film so vapid and soulless that it will melt the brain of anyone who watches it. Realising that behind this monstrosity is none other than a power-crazed Alan Rickman, they find themselves on a mission to put the heart and soul back into cinema before the entire world is “dumb-enated”.

Homages to classic films, blood-pumping theme music and kick-ass training montages abound in this fast-paced show produced by With Our Powers Combined, a theatre co-operative created as a collaboration between Sceptre Theatre, Killer Darlings Collective and Red Scare Collective.

This show is part of the 2015 Auckland Fringe Festival, an open access arts festival where anything can happen. Tickets will cost $18 full, $15 concession and can be booked through Auckland Fringe.
