Activities in 2018

Next Club Night
September 21 at 7.30pm, Cochran Hall

A lively and at times very funny evening of intrigue and treachery as director Matt Todd and his cast perform a rehearsed reading of Kiwi Dean Parker's play Midnight in Moscow.
From Heidi North-Bailey's review in Theatre Review of the 2013 production at the Aotea Centre:
"Set in 1947, inside the New Zealand Legation in Moscow, 30 years after the Bolshevik revolution, it revolves around the public and private lives of the legation staff. The play contrasts the relaxed sociable world inside the Legation, where no-one seems to do much except eat and drink, with the pressured political world of Soviet Russia just beyond their walls.
"This makes the violations within the walls of this supposed sanctuary - as the embassy becomes embroiled in intrigues when it is revealed that they have a spy in their midst - even more treacherous, and it heightens the tension of the play's central question. What constitutes the deepest treachery: betrayal of your country or your friends?
"Parker skilfully interweaves this debate into a lively and at times very funny work. He never lets us forget, however, that at every turn, betrayal simmers just below the surface. This creates a wonderful tension in the play, as layers peel back and the relationships between the characters are revealed."

Come to Cochran Hall for a 7:30 start on Friday September 21st and join your fellow KAT thespians at this stimulating club night.

All members and would-be members welcome.
