Shortlisted for Playmarket’s Playwrights b4 25 competition in 2016, Movers by James Cain is a hilarious and heartfelt take on the differences in age, race and class at a moving company.

It’s a common scene: a student gets a job to pay the bills, and finds themselves having to get along with their old(er) co-workers despite massive differences. In Red Scare Theatre Company’s Movers, that student is Tai, a wannabe stand-up comedian who has just finished uni and has no real clue about what to do next.

When he takes a job at a moving company to kill time, he meets Oscar and Bruce, two Pākehā blokes as ‘middle New Zealand’ as can be.

At first, Tai is eager to turn Oscar and Bruce into material for his stand-up act, but as he starts to feel at home at Oscar's Movers he finds himself questioning where his loyalties lie: with his job, or with his career.
