The spy who wouldn’t die again

Media_httpwwwdownstag_ypaph

There are a couple of quality shows on in Wellington atm and this is the purely entertaining one. Super spy Stephen St Clair is at his retirement party and is convinced to tell us about one of his missions. *guffaw guffaw* Cue flashback to New Zealand in the 80s! Cue strange and wonderful characters! Cue beautiful women! Cue accents and wigs! Cue mayhem and fun!

I can’t spoil the story for you – if you’ve seen any spy movie from the 80s then you pretty much know the plot. What I particularly loved was the way that the company used the whole theatre space.  The four actors and one stage manager did an amazing job of running around the different levels and trapdoors at Downstage. There were too many moments of pure joy to pick out a favourite. Recommended.

Disclaimer: I’m stoked to be a Downstage Ambassador which means they give me tickets to their shows for Season One. Unfortunately I was sick the night the tickets were booked so I paid for my own ticket. (Unfortunate that I was sick, not that I had to pay that is.)
