By Roger Hall.

Following a hugely successful national tour in the 1990s, Roger Hall’s comedy C’Mon Black! is back. This brand new production features the stellar talent of Gavin Rutherford (Le Sud, Robin Hood) as the rugby-mad dairy farmer Dickie Hart.

Cow-cockie Dickie has never been off the farm to travel, but it’s a World Cup Year (1995) for heaven’s sake! Dickie sets off to South Africa on a supporter’s tour to follow the best rugby team in the world, and to see them bring home the World Cup. With Jonah Lomu, Zinny and Fitzy on the team, how can they possibly lose?

On his trip, Dickie encounters big games and big game; Zulus, Aucklanders and other foreign cultures; and learns a heap about himself.

This big-hearted revival of one of New Zealand’s favourite plays – written by the country’s favourite playwright about our favourite sport – is the ideal entertainment for 2011.

Directed by Andrew Foster, and produced by Armstrong Creative (Niu Sila, King and Country, Le Sud), C’Mon Black! is a once-in-a-lifetime trip you won’t want to miss.
