How to get tickets

Sorry, this show is over.


Fresh local scripts never seen before are paired with old classics on the PumpHouse Theatre stage in the short season of staged play readings called ‘Something Old, Something New’, from 17-20 May.

Each evening will include two plays, one old, one new, and a forum after each where audience, actors and writers can give their feedback on what the play was like to act in and watch.

Tickets are just $5.00 available pre-show or at the door, with audience members requested to make a further donation or koha directly after the performance which will be shared amongst the performers.

Auckland-based playwrights include Meg Andrews, Susan Battye and Ashley Milne, while the roster of old talent includes the likes of Anton Chekhov and J.M. Barrie.

Also featuring in the season is new work by Claire Ahuriri-Dunning, winner of the 2005 season of Flip the Script playwriting competition, and curator of ‘Something Old, Something New’.
