It's Christmas at the Beehive...and all is not well.

As parliament closes down for the year, National just wants to go home. But the Prime Minister knows how to rally his troops, and organises one final caucus dinner to lift their spirits. Meanwhile Labour are more interested in trying to land some final points for the year, the Greens can't decide if celebrating the commercialism of Christmas is in line with their philosophy, ACT need to avoid unwanted xmas presents, United won’t choose which Christmas party to attend, the Maori Party and Mana look for a miracle, and Winston says “bah humbug” to them all.

Then a sudden spiritual reckoning begins to unravel everything.

After a sold out season in the NZ International Comedy Festival, Public Service Announcements returns to BATS Theatre for the silly season with an all-star cast including the return of Allen Henry as Winston Peters.

This up-to-date political satire presents an enlightening look into the mundane craziness of the parliamentary process as all your favourite (and not so favourite) Politician’s try to survive the Christmas period.

‘...brought continual waves of laughter from the audience to make this a laugh-a-minute show, a great piece of political satire and very entertaining.’ - Ewan Coleman, The Dominion Post.

Directed by Anya Tate-Manning and written by two-time Billy T Nominee James Nokise.
