Elmwood Players

Elmwood Players are excited to present the Christchurch premier of Tim Hambleton’s hilarious farcical comedy Heaven Help Us, directed by Phil Dean.

This is the second time that Elmwood has presented to Christchurch theatregoers a Tim Hambleton play. The last production “Thick as thieves” in 2014 entertained large audiences with fast paced comedy and a clever story.

Heaven Help Us is a fast paced farcical comedy set at the gates of heaven where Angela is sitting in for St Peter while he is on stress leave. Her main task is to select the right people to enter into Heaven, something she has mixed success achieving.

“There are moments of side splitting genius in this play” says Director Phil Dean.

Tim and Phil have a shared alter ego in their daytime jobs working for the New Zealand Police; Tim is a Dunedin based prosecutor and Phil is a Canterbury based front line Road Policing manager. “It is a real treat for me to be able to collaborate with Tim again outside our professional world and on such a funny play,” Dean said.

Guaranteed to have the audience in stitches from the opening scene right through to the final curtain closing.
