“Every battle is Chunuk Bair; every war is the First World War.”

Two Kiwi guys meet two Aussie girls, the rest is history.

Anzac Eve is an exciting new play about a disparate group of ‘twentysomethings’ on their big OE, who happen upon each other the night before Dawn commemorations at Gallipoli. National pride and personal issues stir up strong feelings as tempers flare, romance sparks and ghosts are uncovered.

Each seeing historical events through their own lens, are they really there to solemnly commemorate the occasion? Or, are they just there for a boozy party and possible hook-up?

Directed by Jamie McCaskill and written by Dave Armstrong, Anzac Eve is highly entertaining and takes an honest and unflinching look at the ANZAC experience. This fresh and contemporary take on a significant time in our nation’s history, this is a must-see for every young New Zealander.

“First class entertainment. A strong exploration of unsavoury fact versus popular fiction.” - Otago Daily Times.

Presented by Tourmakers for the Southland Arts Festival and supported by Creative NZ and the Southland District Council.

Commissioned by the Festival of Colour and funded by NZ WW1 Centenary Fund.

Door Sales available from 7:00pm.
