PlayShop is a Wellington-based performance company that creates spontaneous, thrilling theatre. They create opportunities for people to experience the joy of playful interaction through theatre, storytelling, education, and improvisation.

They are risk-takers, open to the potential of every moment, so that the actor and audience share meaningful stories that arise from the present, and stay in memory for time to come. Led by Artistic Director Lori Leigh, PlayShop is characterised by intelligence, energy, solid stagecraft, theatricality, and emotional honesty. They believe the skills and philosophies of performance can be used to create exciting, risky, accessible theatre of all types.

Three of Playshop’s wonderful improvisers are gearing up to play and delight, create and enchant. The stories they will tell, act out (and maybe even sing!) will come from not only their heads and hearts, but also from those sitting right in front of them.

These inclusive and interactive tales, created on the spot, derive from fairy tales. Immerse yourself in their made-up worlds; be a part of the story with them, or sit back, enjoy, and get ready to laugh. During their shows you will never see the same story twice!

Entry: Koha (also why not buy a cup of tea or coffee and a cake to support Booktown while you enjoy the show?)

This is an event involved in the Featherston Booktown Festival on Friday 11th, Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th May celebrating everything to do with books, writers and reading.

The three-day programme includes writing workshops; poetry readings; talks by leading authors and illustrators; and a book fair including stalls with rare and second hand books. There are also events specifically for children while this year’s festival has a special emphasis on poetry and young adult fiction.
