  • Mr Red Light

Mr Red Light is a man who attracts bad luck. Fleeing the police after a botched bank robbery, he seeks refuge in a pie shop and finds himself in charge of three very uncooperative hostages. As time ticks by and police negotiations are bungled, Mr Red Light and his captives play a game of getting to know you. With nowhere to run and nothing to lose, the four strangers form an unlikely bond. Suddenly the pie shop is a place where anything can happen.

From the team behind the award-winning Te Po, Spirit House and 360, Mr Red Light combines the hapless humour of Dog Day Afternoon with the quirky life-affirming charm of Amelie. Joyfully inventive, absurdly funny and full of surprises, it will remind you just how mysterious and wonderful life can be.

Please Note: Contains coarse language, scenes with a gun and gun fire.

Presented by Nightsong and Tour-Makers in association with the Festival of Colour.
