8 plays. 8 actors. 80 minutes. “Be prepared for the unexpected.”

BITES is a showcase of eight short plays from the recent National Playwright Association of New Zealand Short Play Writing Competition. The plays cover a variety of themes but all centre on how humans behave in today’s ever changing world. With an extremely talented cast, experienced breadth of directors and professional crew, BITES guarantees to be a worthwhile evening of original and thought-provoking new theatre.
