Check out the website of Free Theatre Christchurch, especially the Theatre of Unease essay. In it, Peter Falkenburg argues that whereas NZ film has a history of roughness and difficulty, (cinema of unease), "the mirror that New Zealand theatre seems to hold up to its audience seems to be one of reassurance, that everything is all right or it will be." Worth a peek. We shared The Globe in Dunedin with Free Theatre at the start of the year and saw first hand the unsettling and very uneasy Ella and Sussn. Hope they get to Wellington again soon!
Also, have a look at the handsome and mellifluous home of Barbarian Productions
