Kapiti Playhouse is Steaming ahead
Kapiti Playhouse's first production for 2011 is Steaming, by Nell Dunn, directed by Kate Spencer.
Tickets: $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and students. There is a $2 discount per ticket for block bookings of ten or more. There is also a special '2-for-1' offer (eg 2 adult tickets for $18) for the first two nights (Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 March).
Bookings: For all bookings and enquiries phone Petronella on 905 9295 or email her through the contact form on the Contact Us page.
Cast: We have an excellent cast of women and crew assembled. We also welcome two newcomers to the stage at Kapiti Playhouse - Lynette Hardy and Teresa Sullivan. The full cast is as follows:
Violet – Lynette Hardy
In charge of the women's baths for the past 18 years is Violet, who absorbs like a sponge … much the same as a hairdresser … the good times, the traumas and the day-to-day lives of her regular clients.
Hilariously amusing, Steaming focuses on the intimate lives of Mrs Meadow and her dim-wit adult daughter Dawn, posh Nancy and her boho mature divorced student friend Jane, and the rough and ready topless dancer Josie. They are all brought under the spotlight in The Turkish Room. When disaster strikes and the baths are under threat of closure, the mismatched band of women join forces and make a stand for their bastion of escapism.
