Petits Fours


Four award-winning plays. Four provocative storylines. Four bite-sized pieces of NZ Theatre. Waihi Drama is excited to present ‘Petits Fours’: 2016’s four best one-act plays as judged by the Playwrights Association of New Zealand.

Each performance begins with ‘The Imitation Game’, written by Colin Beardon and directed by Noeline Loader: One man, his social worker, and an intelligent fridge. Love can be found in the strangest places.

If you’re hungry for more, third place-getter, ‘New Zealander’ by Timothy Malcolm takes the next spot. Sara Single directs this story about an immigrant finding his place in a new land.

‘A Much Bigger Story’ is told next. Written by June Allen and directed by Tracey Carter, the meaty script explores the choices of teenagers living on the streets. It won second prize in the 2016 competition.

Petits Fours ends on a sweet note with first prize-winner Robert Gilbert’s ‘Between The Aisles’. Elaine Jones directs this witty and imaginative work poking fun at theatre-goers.

‘Petits Fours’ runs October 7-9 and 14-16 with both matinee and evening performances. Tickets $15 each will be available from early September. Full details available on our website
