Camping, a New Zealand summer tradition. Beautiful sandy beaches, lush landscapes, sausages on the barbeque, the smell of dimp and the salty sea air…

Each summer we return to the arms of Mother Nature, parting with our creature comforts for a taste of The Great Outdoors.

Auckland-based Yes Please Theatre are delighted to present I Camping at the Fortune Theatre Studio as part of the Dunedin Fringe 2010. An original New Zealand theatre work written by Sophie Henderson and Curtis Vowell, I Camping will appeal to anyone who has ever pitched a tent.

Directed by Cameron Rhodes, and featuring Curtis Vowell, Sophie Henderson, Brett O’Gorman and Michelle Blundell. I Camping is a hilarious look at a Kiwi summer tradition that promises to evoke wonderful memories of bygone summers.

William (Curtis Vowell) has surprised Samantha (Sophie Henderson) by taking her to the camp ground she came to every year as a child. Samantha is lying about loving the place. William is lying about being a camping expert. They are about to find out they barely know each other. A collection of eccentric campers played by Michelle Blundell and Brett O’Gorman make this a camping trip to remember.

Torrential rain. Outrageous neighbours.

Stolen baked beans. Third degree burns. No privacy.

Its in tents.

This is an unromantic comedy not to be missed.
