A THRILLING DARK COMEDY
In a nutshell:
LOCKUP LAUGHS •
A CAPTIVE AUDIENCE
WRITERS MIRIAMA MCDOWELL AND ROB MOKORAKA WITH JASON TE KARE
DIRECTOR JASON TE KARE
Eight counts unlawful entry using imagination, five counts reckless use of Māori mythology, four counts possession and cultivation of Shakespeare, and one count dangerous operation of a voice class.
In Cellfish hardened inmates come face to face with a whole new nightmare: Shakespeare classes with Miss Lucy! Some are looking to improve their parole chances, others want to kill some time and one just wants to kill.
Funny and insightful, this gripping new work takes us behind the walls of a New Zealand Correctional Facility and into the minds of its residents
Cellfish is a delicious dark comedy with thrilling twists. Be captured by the action at the schools matinees followed by a post show Q&A with the writers, actors and directors.
Contains strong language and adult themes.
