Literature or Ephemera?

Too few plays get repeat showings. Some gather dust, few go on forever. Even Bruce Mason and Roger Hall, who are household names, have not had all of their plays staged. Some plays are studied, some seen often, some are devised and some forgotten.

Spotlight on Playwrights

It’s Circa’s 40th birthday and in true Circa tradition, New Zealand playwrights are centre stage. Circa will celebrate the 100+ New Zealand playwrights whose work has captivated audiences over the years in a Spotlight on Playwrights; from Roger Hall’s first play Glide Time in 1976 to Kate De Goldi’s The ABC with Honora Lee adapted for stage by Jane Waddell in 2016. There will be events, stimulating panel discussions, and a reading of Anthony McCarten’s new work funnygirl in which he dramatises his explosive novel – a plea for tolerance and freedom for individuals and art. A High Tea in honour of Circa stalwart Roger Hall will be hosted by Playmarket New Zealand.
