Three young women wait in a room. They are guided through their final days by a mysterious Usher until they understand what has happened to them.

Following on from their sell-out season of Hippolytus Veiled, Theatrewhack present Patrick Graham's 'Lost Girls'.

This new staging stars:
- Prema Cottingham (The Rover, Defensibility, Great Bellied Women)
- Courtney Eggleton (The Seven Year Twitch, The Rover, End of the Golden Weather)
- Renee Brierley (The Priory, Stella, Conversations of Karangahape Rd)
- Turene Jones (Stage of Fools, The Shannara Chronicles, Mystery Play) and is directed by Theatrewhack regular Mark Oughton in his New Zealand directorial debut.

Join us on opening night, Thursday 29th September, for a 30-minute post-show panel with the playwright, director, and representatives from Victim Support, and Rape Prevention Education.

We are running a Boosted campaign to help pay the cast for their time: http://www.boosted.org.nz/projects/lost-girls

Developed following a series of brutal murders of young women in New Zealand in the late 90s, Lost Girls is the examination of the final memories of three young women (6, 16 and 18 years of age).

The play was performed in Wellington and Auckland in 2007 and 2013. This new production was initiated because of the prevalence of rape culture and rape apologists in social media, and as a reaction to recent rape cases such as Steubenville, the defending of sports personalities who are violent towards women, and the current national campaigns to reduce violence in families and relationships.

The play hopes to provoke the audience and leave people questioning their own moral compass.
