Description

Cellfish (Aotearoa)
Written by Jason Te Kare, Miriama McDowell & Rob Mokaraka

Eight counts of unlawful entry using imagination, five counts of reckless use of Maori mythology, four counts of possession and cultivation of Shakespeare, and one count dangerous operation of a voice class...

Taki Rua and Theatre of Auckland present Cellfish, where inmates come face to face with a whole new nightmare: Shakespeare classes with Miss Lucy! Some are looking to improve parole chances, others want to kill some time and one just wants to kill. Funny and insightful, this gripping new work takes us behind the walls of a New Zealand Correctional Facility and into the minds of its residents.

Starring acclaimed actors Jason Te Kare and Carrie Green, Cellfish gives agency to the voiceless.

Contains coarse language, the depiction of domestic violence and abuse, gunshot sounds and uses haze.

Latecomers NOT admitted from 10mins into the show.
