In the meantime we have two openings this week – The Love of Your Life on Tuesday and Broken China on Saturday. Both these shows are playing for strictly limited seasons, so make sure you book yourselves in. Details of both shows below.
And the time has come for our long serving Technical and Facilities Manager Anneliese Mudge to move on. While we are incredibly sad to see her go after four amazing years at BATS, we are excited to think who could be filling her work boots!

The Love of Your Life

February 1st – 5th @ 8pm (5 nights only!) @ 8pm

Described as a cross between Summer Heights High and Lost, The Love of Your Life is a Doco-Fable, a modern NZ fairytale about an island that thrives on making the best of a situation. It is not necessarily about the lady or fella who holds your hand at the flicks. But it could be too.

“These are the truly desperate housewives.” – (Theatreview)
The multi-award winning Almost a Bird Theatre Collective returns to BATS with their bold new work, a celebration of all of us who have ever felt trapped and looked for a way out. An unexpected meeting between two women in a Remuera kitchen in the 1950’s leads to the chance of escape from their stifling existence. From the makers of the acclaimed Wolf’s Lair and direct from a sell-out season in Auckland.
