Backstage

Tonight I was invited to (a sneak peek) behind the scenes, for Auckland Theatre Company’s upcoming production of ‘Kings of the Gym’ by Dave Armstrong. The cast includes John Leigh, Bronwyn Bradley, Brett O’Gorman and Cian Elyse White, directed by Peter Elliott. A snippet of the play was performed, we meet the principal, Viv Cleaver who is head-strong and confrontational. She challenges the dogmatic views of Laurie O’Connor, the PE (Physical Education) head, who is not very politically correct, albeit funny. Then, in walks a new teacher. “This play is all about the heart, not about the gags.” Looking forward to seeing the full performance, opening 7 February – 2 March. Great cast.
