1917: Until the Day Dawns by Keith Scott. This production is staged to mark the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele. It tells the story of three young Otago men and their experiences of the worst year of the Great War. Some experiences are shared, others are met alone. Some difficult truths are faced, others are not. One comes home, two do not. October 5 to 14.
The Ladykillers by Graham Linehan. To be directed by Brian Beresford. Based on the famous film this criminally madcap caper is about a bunch of misfits posing as an amateur chamber orchestra, but actually planning a bank heist. Perfect silly season fare for all! December 7 to 16.
