A searing political thriller:
It’s election night and a fledgling new party led by the charismatic and idealistic Aria Robson clinches one seat in Parliament. That same night, an intern comes to her with a scandal that could sink the party by morning. Aria must decide what or who she is willing to sacrifice for her ambitions.

A timely work by the talented young playwright Sam Brooks (The Spinoff) that highlights the tensions between integrity, the power of spin and the hazards of being a woman in the unforgiving world of politics.

Burn Her was short-listed for the Adam NZ Play Award 2017 and had a sell-out production at Q Theatre in 2018.

Starring: Kali Kopae, Sophie Hambleton, Jean Sergent, Andrew Laing, Dryw McArthur, Lara Macgregor

"Brooks has done a humdinger of a job… a wryly observed dissection of where humanity comes into politics – and life in general – with women at the centre." – Dionne Christian, NZ Herald review

"His words are intelligent, confronting, genuinely funny, and crackle with a musicality that echoes his own sardonic yet considered wit." – Matt Baker, Theatre Scenes

Presented by arrangement with Playmarket.
