The Y&H Tour (formerly EnsembleImpact National Schools Tour;Asian Invasion, Power Plays, OUTLIERS) is back with a 50-minute bare bones programme of NZ Theatre that comes direct to your drama room or auditorium.
Performed in traverse (audience on the two long sides with a performance space of 9m by 5m preferred) by four professional actors, the show requires no lighting or sound set up. It is ideally suited to Drama students in years 10-13, to a maximum audience of 150 and has a 5-minute Q&A built into the programme. A FREE extension of the Q&A for up to 15 minutes can be arranged at time of booking. Touring 30 April – 21 June, 2019.
Directed by Patrick Davies, A COUNTRY OF TWO HALVES features 8 – 9 extracts from modern NZ plays that helps us understand how the ‘other half’ lives – whether that be the have and have-nots; rural and city; privileged and un-empowered. A COUNTRY OF TWO HALVES can open discussion about the misunderstandings that keep us divided and what brings us together.
The programme will feature extracts from playwrights on the NZQA prescribed reading list.
