I've been really blown away by the responses to all my
productions and want YOU to come on board the journey with our next
piece - The Lazarus Lottery by James van Dyk, at BATS Theatre.
In association with Playmarket, this 2018 Adam NZ Play Award
finalist looks at the near future of human cloning and what that
means for the whanau, for our friends and for the soul.
Eve has terminal cancer, but she has won the Lazarus Lottery.
After her death she will be 'replaced' by a fully-grown clone,
complete with memories. But some friends and family think this is
wrong. Are Eve and devoted husband David ready for the
ramifications, not only with their whanau but with each other? Just
because we can achieve this kind of 'medical miracle', should we
play god? Does the new Eve have a soul?
We've been putting our backs into it and rehearsing up a storm.
And sadly, if you aren't in Welly when it's on, you're not going to
get to see it. [sad face emoji].
But that doesn't mean that you can't be a part of making ou
co-op venture a success.
By buying the equivalent of one ticket ($20 - two wines, or two
beers, or 3-4 coffees depending on where you live) I just need 100
mates to donate and we are there.
YES, WE ARE CRAZY - WE WANT TO DO THIS CAMPAIGN IN ONLY TWO
But we really believe we can do it.
I'm really proud to be directing this World Premiere and to have

I'm asking all my mates, friends, both lovers, and supporters to
help me reach those heights.
