  • 'Wonderful' - Bannockburn

Huber’s latest play 'Wonderful' which is the second in a planned trilogy of plays, the first being the nationally acclaimed 1930s screwball comedy 'Glorious'. Direction is by Richard Huber with performances by Sarah and Blaise Barham.

'Wonderful' is the story of the divine Lady Hermione and her loyal butler Roberts, as they grapple with the important issues of modern life - biscuits, trousers, sausages, art and what to do about Penelope.

Set in England, during the witty and just a little bit notorious roaring 20s, its characters cast aside the darkness, despair and bad poetry from the Great War and fall headlong into the brave new world of martinis, monocles, romance, and fountains; the starlight glittering on the water like diamonds.

One part drawing-room farce, two measures of Love and a splash of the comedy of manners, it asks the age-old question of all great love stories: What is the price of following your heart and are you willing to pay it? Where does Uncle Dickie keep the biscuits, and what did the actress actually say to the bishop?

This new play premiered at the Dunedin Playhouse from 10-13 November 2022 and Wellington Fringe 2023 is part of a New Zealand tour season of this new NZ play.
