Comedy, tragedy, suspense and romance.

You might find all of these genres in this fifth biennial season of the Ellerslie Festival of One Act Plays. Six plays, including three premieres, and six directors covering six stories ranging from abandonment and birthday celebrations to retirement and unexplained departures. Three plays are being performed at each show so book for two shows to see all plays.

Bonus Quiz Nights on Wednesday 26 and Friday 28 August.
Team up with friends, family or colleagues and book a table for eight or join another table for a night of fun and to test your general knowledge, oh, and to see three one act plays. Simply book your tickets for either of these shows for a fun packed evening!
