Anzac Eve

Written by Dave Armstrong. Director Jamie McCaskill. 

 

Two young Kiwi guys meet two young Aussie girls… the rest is history.

ANZAC Eve is an exciting new play about a disparate group of ‘twentysomethings’ on their big OE, who happen upon each other the night before Dawn commemorations at Gallipoli.

National pride and personal issues stir up strong feelings as tempers flare, romance sparks and ghosts are uncovered. Each seeing historical events through their own lense, are they really there to solemnly commemorate the occasion? Or, are they just there for a boozy party and possible hook-up?

Directed by Jamie McCaskill and written by Dave Armstrong (Le Sud), ANZAC Eve is highly entertaining and takes an honest and unflinching look at the ANZAC experience.

Commissioned by the Festival of Colour and
funded by NZ WW1 Centenary Fund.

Every battle is Chunuk Bair; every war is the First World War.
