HLT Studio

Supported and developed by Howick Little Theatre, the HLT Studio is a platform for new works and creatives. Its mission is to present three short seasons of plays, as well as staged readings each year. Over the course of the year, we aim to support and showcase new directors, new or inexperienced actors and a new New Zealand playwright. 

 

The Studio was founded by Terry Hooper and the Studio Director Nick Martin. Both passionate theatre practitioners, they created this platform to introduce a quality theatre experience that pushes boundaries.

2018 SEASON

Our final play in 2018 is Eugenia, by New Zealand playwright Lorae Parry, which was inspired by the book Eugenia: A Man, by Suzanne Falkiner. The play is set in Wellington in 1916 and 2016. This drama moves from the past in presenting a view of the life of Eugenia Falleni, who dressed and lived as a man and was accused of murdering his wife in Sydney in 1920. The play jumps back and forth between the two time periods, with the recapitulation of Eugenia’s life, as the modern-day setting takes place at a rehearsal for a school play about Eugenia’s life. 

Directed by David Inglis.

Season: October 3-6. Book tickets NOW.
