A clever, witty comedy about truth and consequences by New Zealand playwright, Roger Hall. An all-female group of four teachers, one school counsellor and a reluctantly accompanying teenage daughter get stuck in a DOC hut due to foul weather. By day three they are definitely not happy campers!
It's been called the hen party from hell and audiences will be able to identify the characters - superwoman Susan trying to organise everyone while her own life disintegrates. The older, soon to be forcibly retired Kath. Young and bolshie Sinead and her anxious doormat of a mother, Emily. Counsellor Annie having a meltdown. And brazen Maxine.
The group tries to empathise with each other and keep it together as the weather keeps them stuck in one place for nights on end. Tempers fray, secrets are revealed, and too much vodka is consumed.
The cast line up:
Sonia Enoka - Kath
Paulette McIndoe - Susan
Sue Mortimer - Annie
Marion Rosner - Emily
Lauren Ford-Jones - Sinead
Anneke Mace - Maxine
