New Zealand’s most celebrated playwright Roger Hall pits a group of female teachers together with a school counsellor and a reluctant daughter for a weekend of bushwalking, sparkling wine and sparkling comedy.
The perfect pre-Christmas party for your friends, social club and work colleagues.
What do you call six women stranded on a mountain in the rain: ridiculous! Or you could call them social climbers … just not to their faces!
Once at the hut, not only do they unload their packs full of food, wine, and a souvenir rock; their hang-ups get unloaded as well.
Torrential rain and a flooded bridge keep them stranded for three days. What they get up to, to help pass the time, raises a few eyebrows and will have you laughing, tearing up and applauding enthusiastically as they bare all.
Of course, it’s not just souls that are exposed, there’s a little nudity, a cracking thunderstorm, explosions, screaming bloody murder, ghostly stories, a birthday celebration, a séance, a drunken party, confessions, melt downs and revelations that will keep you and your friends entertained throughout.
Perfectly timed for your own social group’s ascent into summer, don’t miss this hilarious play when it comes to a town near you in November.
SOCIAL CLIMBERS, written by Roger Hall, the first playwright to win a Prime Minister’s Literary award.
