Don’t miss ‘Revenge of the Amazons’, by Kiwi playwright Jean Betts – a play re-written from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Nights’ Dream with strong feminist themes.
Director of Theatre Arts at Rangi Ruru, Peter Rutherford says despite the age of the play, the issues are still very relevant in 2017.
“The play has been described as ‘side splitting satire’ and it certainly manages to be hilarious, touching, bawdy and bewildering within its two hours. Those brave enough to see it will come away entertained,” he says.
The production is being done in collaboration with Aviva. Rangi Ruru School is supporting Aviva’s family and sexual violence services by taking donations of female hygiene products (including deodorant, tampons and toothpaste). A gold coin donation to Aviva can also be made at the door.
