After a full year of frustrating Covid delays, Tadpole Productions will be celebrating ten years since their formation with the staging of the World Premiere of The Campervan, by Kathryn Burnett. At The PumpHouse Theatre in Takapuna, for a strictly limited season the show is directed by Simon Prast, with a cast of five renowned actors. Andrew Grainger and Lisa Chappell are joined by Milo Cawthorne, Greg Johnson, and Catriona Toop.

Forget the mid-life crisis – welcome to the full-blown 60th birthday meltdown! A comedy about the absolute havoc that can be caused by good intentions, combined with the realization that time is catching up with what we might want to achieve in life. Successful businessman Hugh and his younger second wife Tamsin live a life of luxury. But when Hugh decides something is missing and he wants to give away his millions as a legacy to a good cause and live in a campervan, the family wheels are bound to fall off…

Kathryn Burnett is an award-winning writer known for her work on Under The Vines, Fresh Eggs, and The Tender Trap.

The Campervan will make for a great night of entertainment, all in typical Tadpole style.

⏰ Run Time: 120min with an interval
