The hit show of the Summer. Perfect for the whole family!

Returning after a sold-out season, Barbarian Productions is back for an extra-soft dose of restraint, and some extra-extra-hard comedy. In the preposterous world of Soft'N'Hard, the curtains are so beautiful you can get lost in them, taking a shower is so deep you need a wetsuit, and the view in the mirror is simply breathtaking.

Catch real-life power-couple Jo Randerson and Thomas LaHood as they fumble their way through the fraught territory of gender posturing in this "deceptively clever and devilishly beguiling work" (Patrick Davies, Theatreview).

What could possibly go wrong?

In recent years Barbarian Productions has become known for a radically progressive approach to theatre: taking over the entire back end of the State Opera House (Grand Opening, 2015-), filling the Wellington Cathedral with songs of inter-generational conflict (Sing It To My Face, 2014-), and dishing out free haircuts in exchange for political discussion (Political Cutz, 2014-).

In 2016 they received the Wellington Theatre Awards Jury Prize for their outstanding overall contribution to Wellington Theatre. In 2017 they received a Wellington Airport Community Award for Arts and Culture.

Soft’N’Hard was nominated for Excellence in Design for overall production design at the 2017 Wellington Theatre Awards.
