Mr Red Light is a man who attracts bad luck. So naturally, when he tries to rob a bank he fails miserably and ends up in a pie shop dealing with three very uncooperative hostages and the world’s worst police negotiator.

As time ticks by, Mr Red Light and his captives play a game of getting to know you. And mysteriously, Mr Red Light seems to know more about his hostages’ lives than is possible.

Created by the award-winning Nightsong team (Te Pō, 360) who “make the impossible work” (Stuff). Joyfully inventive, absurdly funny and full of surprises, Mr Red Light could be a fool or a prophet. Either way, he will remind you how wonderful life can be.

Commissioned by New Zealand Festival of the Arts and developed with the support of Auckland Live.
