You’re in for one hell of a night!

The world’s most famous boy band, FourEver, is nearly ready to take the stage for their only New Zealand show. All that stands in their way is each other, their fans, the media, and the ghosts of their dodgy past. Making it out of the green room alive would be a miracle, let alone lasting the rest of the tour…

Written by Emily Duncan / Directed by Rose Kirkup

When the cameras stop rolling who will stick to script?

Max Angelis has made his fame and fortune with his reality TV show Max’s Angels. However, beasts and demons are released in his celebrity perfect home when two fallen angels arrive to take revenge and reveal explosive truths about his family. It will be the most heated episode of Max’s show ever. 

Written by Abby Howells / Directed by Patrick Davies

War, peace and a side of grease!

A comedy set in a late night fast food restaurant, featuring terrible customers, disgusting food, Tom Cruise, a new duty manager. Oh, and also ATTILA THE HUN, he’s there too.
