Leaving Wonderland

by Heidi North-Bailey

Everyone you meet has a story. No one enters your life without reason. What happens when two worlds collide? Aspiring writer, Kyra, and party girl, Alice, two young New Zealanders, meet on a chance encounter in a dingy hostel in London, and over an evening they strike up an intense friendship. Strangers, or are they?

A psychological drama asking the questions: Who can we blame? What does anger make us into? And what does guilt make us capable of?

Director: Matt Baker Cast: Aimee Gestro, Jess Sayer

Share your thoughts with the writer, director and actors after the reading.

All welcome.

Entry is free, a small koha would be appreciated.

The Auckland Playwrights Collective have been presenting Read Raw for over 6 years. Read Raw focuses on the writer’s development process ensuring that the workshop, public reading and discussion session is a positive experience providing the writer with the necessary support and feedback to complete a new draft of their play and work towards a professional production.
