This segment's not just about penguin noods and drunken soldiers, though you might be fooled, Zoë has some good recommendation's for your rainy weekend, Heat at Basement Theatre, Things I Know to be True at Ellerslie Theatre and some opera, The Barber of Seville at ASB Waterfront Theatre, wowee.
It's a weekend for epic poems, according to Zoë and on this stormy weekend, she reckons you've gotta get along to Meera, and An Iliad. And if you're more interesting in the artificial intelligence world, Synthetic is where it's at for you this weekend.
Zoë joins us with Marianne from Proudly Asian Theatre and playright, Hweiling Owto chat with Rachel about what's going on in the theatre world, the support in their communities and life, death and vibrators. So you definitely don't want to miss out on Fresh off the Page.
It's our last catch up with Johanna for a little while and what a note to end on, the NZ Comedy Festival! Johanna's got some hot pics for Rachel, but she reckons you've got to get in quick before they sell out. If you're looking for laughs, to get decked (Rachel's term) or floored (Johanna's term), then get your tickets here.
We're lucky enough to have a guest from the theatre world in to chat to us this morning, Shagun Choudray is here, the production manager for Meera. Sha talks to Mikey about how the play came about (14 years of research!) and how that ties in to Aotearoa. This is definitely worth getting your tickets to, there might even be a special code for those who listen in quick.
In between relaxing post HeadSand, and gearing up with excitment for Comedy Festival, Johanna's got a couple of fave shows to share with us. On her recommendation, get yr tickets to Woman of Citrus and Woven Womxn.
