Come along and be immersed in the process of creating theatre at this exclusive open rehearsal with Fractious Tash at Q Theatre.

Fractious Tash, led by Artistic Director Benjamin Henson and Producer Jason Hodzelmans present work regularly at Q. They are graduates of our Matchbox Development Programme and have presented works such as Titus (which went on to perform at the Pop-Up Globe in 2016), Earnest and Not Psycho.

At Q Theatre in 2017, Fractious Tash will present the NZ premiere of an internationally acclaimed play by British playwright Lucy Prebble and will be deep in the rehearsal process in July.

This Heroes event will give you the opportunity to sit in on rehearsal with Ben, Jason and the cast - be a fly on the wall and gain insight into the creative process.

Spaces are limited, so book early. Each Heroes member may bring up to 2 guests with them.

Boisterous. Clamorous. Riotous.

Fractious Tash is committed to creating new worlds that reflect our own through an off-kilter vision that is urgent, razor-sharp and cheeky to the hilt. Whether igniting new works or re-inventing the classics, prepare for the vibrant and unforgettable. Fractious Tash is led by Artistic Director Benjamin Henson and Producer Jason Hodzelmans. Formed in 2012 with the unforgivingly graphic production, Confessions, the company quickly won the Wellington Fringe Rogue Award.

Their all-male rebooting of Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus was snapped up by Q's 'Q Presents' programme (now Matchbox), receiving enviable acclaim, hype-led reception, and a remount in the Pop-Up Globe. Joining forces with Last Tapes Theatre Company to present an all-male, dandy-inspired Importance of Being Earnest, with a live soundtrack from the greatest hits of Cher, proved to be a winning combination and sold out during its run in Q Loft.

The company continues to build through on-going collaboration with some of the country's most inspiring artists and forward-thinking venues.
