A script-in-hand reading of acclaimed American playwright Robert O’Hara’s exploration of race and family dynamics.
Acclaimed Director and Actress, Anapela Polataivao directs a cast of Gisborne locals in a rehearsed reading of Barbecue – by Robert O’Hara.
An outrageously, darkly funny family comedy which cleverly explores the issue of race. Barbecue begins with the dysfunctional white trash O'Mallery whānau who come together over a barbecue to stage an intervention for their druggie sister Barbara, whose drug habit has gotten out of hand. But as the play continues the O’Mallerys change in a completely unexpected way.
This super relaxed reading is hosted by Smash Palace, and your entry includes good old Gizzy barbecue kai – sozzies and salad.
General Admission $10 (includes kai). Drinks available at the bar.
