Skin Theatre

BITES is a showcase of 8 short (10 minute) plays from the recent National Playwright Association of New Zealand Short Play Writing Competition. PANZ approached Dr. Angie Farrow at Massey University, a highly successful short play writer, and offered Palmerston North the opportunity to host the first ever plays from this new and exciting competition. Skin Theatre was invited to produce the show, and along with funding from Palmerston North City Council, Creative Communities, and Massey University, this unique theatre experience has come to life. The plays cover a variety of themes but all centre on how humans behave in today’s ever changing world. With an extremely talented cast, experienced breadth of directors and professional crew, BITES guarantees to be a worthwhile evening of original and thought-provoking new theatre. Be prepared for the unexpected….

Skin Theatre, who brought you Macbeth back in June 2013, Dark Deeds in January 2014, Shakespeare and The City in April 2014 and The Laramie Project in August 2014, are excited to be bringing this show to Palmerston North.

Skin Theatre was formed because a group of artists in the Manawatu felt that there were not enough strong acting and leadership roles for women in theatre that either challenged or inspired them. Together with a variety of talented Manawatu artists, they have continued to bring challenging and entertaining theatre to Palmerston North.
