Politics up-close ….

The Sold out season is to return to Wellington

Dean Parker’s The Hollow Men will return to Wellington audiences for a two week season at Circa Two. The season at Bats sold out rapidly, so booking early for the Circa season is advised.

The Hollow Men examines the months of Don Brash’s leadership of the National Party leading up to the 2005 election and is a riveting piece of new documentary theatre, a genre which is currently proving to be a phenomenon overseas.

Featuring iconic New Zealand actor Stephen Papps as Don Brash (Best actor NZ film awards for “The End of The Golden Weather”, Spike Milligan in “Ying Tong” Court Theatre) Michael Keir Morrissey, Lyndee-Jane Rutherford, Will Harris, Sam Snedden and Arthur Meek . This talented cast play a variety of political movers and shakers, many of whom still walk the corridors of parliament and have influence behind the scenes today.

Dean Parker writes “… to have it in front of you in black-and-white, as Nicky Hager presented it to us last year, detail by detail, 50 pages of footnotes—it takes your breath away. “Politics,” wrote Albert Camus, “is man’s direct address to other men.” If this is to be true, we must look to ourselves and not to parliamentary processes. Nicky Hager did a superb job with The Hollow Men. … It’s an honour to do the adaptation—a gleeful honour.”
