‘Stir Crazy’ by David McPhail & Jon Gadsby On Sale Now – Book at Royal Wanganui Opera House
Wanganui Repertory’s latest production ‘Stir Crazy’ is a stage adaptation of ‘Letter to Blanchy’ written by the original stars David McPhail and Jon Gadsby ten years after the original television show ended. A jolly boys’ week in the country becomes a nightmare when four men find themselves trapped in a fishing hut because of a flooded river. In an effort to pass the time, various inane games, pursuits and pastimes are tried, including an attempt to play poker with an incomplete deck of cards. Tensions in the hut rise to breaking point, until a single, trashy novel is found. Only when the rain finally stops can the four make a dash for freedom. ’Stir Crazy’ promises a night of hilarious entertainment fuelled by good old fashioned kiwi humour http://royaloperahouse.co.nz/bookings
