Starring Alison Quigan. Directed by Rozena Hallum.

Taking Off is a sharply funny and insightful tale from New Zealand’s favourite playwright, Roger Hall. An adventure story for anyone who has ever ‘done’ Britain and the Continent, or simply wished they had.

Four of New Zealand’s best leading ladies take off on Roger Hall’s funny, sensitive comedy that trails four Kiwi gals who, for various personal reasons, decide it’s never too late to do their big OE. Frankie, a teacher, wins Lotto and ditches her husband to travel and recreate herself, Noelene, a nurse, has spent years looking after her terminally ill husband; Ruth, a librarian, up and leaves her cheating husband; and Jean sets off after the death of her closest friend. Dreaming of romance and the exotic, it’s now or never for these flying Kiwis.

A number of surprises are in store for them and they make for an evening of poignant, touching and very funny travelers’ tales!

Finish approx 9:30pm.

Presented by Ben McDonald.
