All Ages


A comedy of alchemy and errors.

Ariel and prospero are just a couple of lads. A couple of lads who really love each other (but not like that). A couple of lads bound to one another – on an island of their own enchanting. Stubborn prospero is going through a break-up, so ariel is left to pick up the pieces. They muster up the essentials for survival: chips, booze and an acoustic guitar.

Larger than life characters collide with striking sincerity on a backdrop of impressive illusions, stunning design, and reimagining of classic New Zealand tracks. Lads on the island is a sharply-written ode to friendship – the messy but magic kind.

The premiere season of a new work by multi award-winning playwright Sam Brooks and directed by Nī Dekkers-Reihana. A new Aotearoa classic, inspired (very loosely) by Shakespeare’s The Tempest.
