My Best Dead Friend

9 - 13 February 6pm

PREVIEW 9 February
DURATION 50 minutes
PRICE $15 - $20

NZ 90s death comedy.

Just before our love got lost you said

“I am as constant as a northern star” and I said,

“Constantly in the darkness

Where’s that at?

If you want me I’ll be in the bar”

A show about a night of vigilante poetic justice, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Karl Marx, the Backstreet Boys and my best dead friend. Grief and comedy combine through this story of one night on the streets of Dunedin in 1998. Armed with a bucket of chalk, four friends set out at midnight to change the world. A new work by New Zealand theatre-maker Anya Tate-Manning and accompanied by images from Melbourne-based artist Emma Morgan, the show mixes memory, grief, and comedy into a one hour theatre piece coated in Leonard Cohen, Leon Trotsky and the sweet, sweet sound of the Backstreet Boys.

“I don’t care who you are, where you’re from, what you did, as long as you love me.” The Backstreet Boys
