Straight from Sydney, and for the first time in NZ, the crowd favourite “Tant Pis” by award-winning New Zealand writer, Roger Gimblett, lands for an all too brief season at the FatG as part of the NZ Fringe.

"Tant Pis" (French: “Too bad”) takes an affectionate and extremely funny swipe at many aspects of the theatre – playwrights, actors, directors, designers, critics and audiences! And does it remarkably well.

There is a shooting, a dead body, mistaken identities, a family reunion – everything one might expect from a play that has cunningly combined a mixture of theatrical styles into an absurdist piece that requires good timing, frenetic pace and quite a bit of hamming!"

New Zealander Roger Gimblett, twice winner of Australia's National One Act playwriting award, brings a rapier wit to skewering theatrical pretension in this critically acclaimed short play.
