My Best Dead Friend
Summerhall Festival - Old Lab
This is a story about my friends. Ok, fine, it's mostly a story about me. December, 1998. Dunedin. The bottom of New Zealand, the bottom of the world. High summer in a town where there isn't a lot to do. This is a comedy about death, revolution, unfulfilled love, and a possum. A true story about heartbreaking grief and enduring friendship, featuring The Verlaines to the Backstreet Boys, and the words of poets Tuwhare, Baxter and Maniapoto. 'Extraordinary joys and sorrows, extraordinary rebellions and submissions' (Sydney Morning Herald). 'Funny, beautiful and devastating' (TheatreView.org.nz).
