The Hobson Street Theatre Company, in association with the Auckland City Mission, are presenting a new show called The Race: an unapologetic piece of theatre looking head on at how racism affects those experiencing homelessness in Aotearoa today.

The company has been together since 2010, presenting 7 shows in that time in venues including the Auckland City Mission Drop-in Centre and the Herald Theatre in the Aotea Centre. The shows are original, self-devised pieces that offer the unique voice of a sometimes marginalised section of society and allow an important discussion around homelessness in New Zealand to be had.

HSTC have been accepted into the Wellington Fringe Festival and will be performing 3 shows at the iconic BATS theatre in March 2018. Whilst initial development funding helped the team create this new piece of theatre, they now need a little extra help to fly the company and their support team down to Wellington so they can debut at the festival and run free theatre workshops for the Downtown Community Ministry while they're there.

A company with a big heart and important things to say, we hope they can continue to spread the message in their own words: "Homeless don't mean Hopeless." 


We'd love to see you at one of our shows:

Herald Theatre, Auckland
28 Feb - 3 March

BATS Theatre, Wellington
19 - 21 March


  • Success!!!!


    Dear awesome donors,

    Yesterday saw The Hobson Street Theatre Company achieve it's Boosted goal and you are a very big part of that! Thank you so much for your generous donation and for helping us to spread the word about homelessness in Aotearoa and prove, as the guys say so superbly, "homeless don't mean hopeless." We are ready to pack our bags for our Wellington debut at BATS in March following another season at The Herald in two week's time.

    We would like to express our sincere gratitude by offering you 1 complimentary ticket to opening night of THE RACE on the 1st of March at the Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre. Come and see the show and have a chat with us afterwards, we'd love to meet you! RSVP to amelia@flock.nz by February 20th to secure your ticket.

    If you can't make it to opening night or live in Wellington, please email me and we'll see what we can do to get you to a show.

    Book your extra tickets here! We hope you can make it, the cast are rehearsing hard out right now to perfect the show.


    Warm regards,

    Amelia and HSTC

    Here's a wee peak at our rehearsals, soaring heat this Auckland summer but the guys are working extremely hard to create a story that inspires korero around homelessness in New Zealand. Thank you for being a part of that conversation.
