Yes: A piece created by Anica Boulanger-Mashberg as part of BlueCow Theatre’s CowShed writing program, Yes, is a series of dramatic and comedic scenes inspired by found images from historical photography collections which give a nostalgic feel to the show.  

The Long Weekend:  A play originally created by  New Zealand director and performer Christine Brooks, The Long Weekend is about a group of friends and family who go to a shack for a long weekend together.  This is a chance to let their hair down and have some fun. But something is revealed that will change their relationships and lives forever.

The Chair: A psycho-drama which looks into the psyche of a patient as they reveal their innermost secrets, thoughts and desires to their therapist and we explore their minds. What will the prognosis be? 



Write Me In: Playwrights and audience members provide scene ideas they would like to see.  These are created in the moment as performers ‘write’ themselves in.
