Black Confetti by Eli Kent was originally commissioned for Auckland Theatre Company and premiered at the Herald Theatre in 2012. In this version, the piece has been expanded with additional material added by Leo Gene Peters, Leon Wadham and the cast.

Black Confetti focuses on the question of youth and consequences. Situated within Wellington’s often alienating party scene, where hipsters desperately yearn for significance, trying to make meaning out of their disaffected world, the play celebrates the ridiculous lengths we go to in order to belong, to be cool, to be loved or even admired.

Directed by: Leo Gene Peters
Production designed by: Rose Kirkup
