Watch: ATC's hilarious parody of Auckland life

Feb 4, 2016 Theatre

Auckland Theatre Company’s (ATC) 2016 season begins next week with satirical comedy Polo. The play lifts the lid on Auckland’s outrageously fortunate and filthy rich in a glossy summer satire. The newest work by Dean Parker, who also wrote ATC favourite Midnight in Moscow and co-wrote the Kiwi classic Came a Hot Friday, is a hilarious expose of Auckland’s A-List, starring some of the country’s hottest actors.

The season will open at SKYCITY Theatre from 11 February. Watch the hilarious teaser to get a glimpse of the Auckland Polo depicts:

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
