Kapiti Playhouse

Kiwifruits is a New Zealand fairy tale. Not a children’s show, though, but a pantomime for adults with music, prince, down-trodden heroine, witch, femme fatale and drag queens! Fay Gay tells her fellow drag performer Tatania the story of how the Castle Road Tavern was turned from a straight-up working men’s pub into a venue for spectacular drag shows. Kiwifruits is a mad free-wheeling Kiwi version of the Cinderella story.

The play is narrated by Fay Gay and Tatania, who keep it moving at breakneck speed by throwing themselves into song and dance routines with some excellent lip-synching thrown in for good effect. Fans of 1970s music will be right at home with lavish renditions of songs including The Age of Aquarius, from the musical Hair, and It’s Raining Men.

None of the musical numbers referred to are sung live. Kiwifruits is the name of a drag nightclub, and the cast lip-synch to recordings
