A comedy of sizzling summer shenanigans!

Auckland Theatre Company brings summer to the stage as award–winning actors Lisa Chappell, Greg Johnson, Stephen Lovatt and Nicola Kawana star in this cracker of a comedy, set in a classic New Zealand motor camp.

Two couples. Two caravans. Two teenagers.

Frank Redmond (Stephen Lovatt), a left-wing literacy lecturer, subjects his long-suffering wife (Lisa Chappell) and daughter (Lucy Lever) to a run-in with their garrulous camp neighbours: Mike Hislop (Greg Johnson), a redneck builder, his social-climbing partner Dawn Tairoa (Nicola Kawana) and her hormonally–charged son, Jarod (Nathan Mudge).

Hilarity ensues as they each try to enjoy their holiday and keep their hormonal teenagers apart.

A gloriously funny take on our annual Kiwi camping rituals written by the award-winning Dave Armstrong, one of New Zealand’s most prolific and popular playwrights. His hit Niu Sila (co-written with Oscar Kightley) played a sold-out Auckland Theatre Company season at AK05 and won a Chapman Tripp Award for Best New Play.

“The perfect après-holiday comedy about the surprising ups and annoying downs of your summer camping experiences.” says Colin McColl, Auckland Theatre Company’s Artistic Director.
