Love, Death, and Videotapes

Two tragicomedies by acclaimed writer/performers Jonny Potts and Jean Sergent weave a journey of love
and loss in Wellington. A guided tour of the capital’s video shops, The Best Show in Town is at Your Place Every Night chases ghosts of our recent past over bright hills and into lost valleys.

Change Your Own Life is a cosmic comedic journey of surviving and thriving through grief, chance, and self-sabotage.

Together, these complementary and sometimes contradictory pieces make for a unique evening of theatre. Live Through This reflects what it has meant to live in this city through times of immense cultural and personal upheaval.

‘I’ve never seen Jean give anything less than a powerhouse performance’ — Pantograph Punch
