Bustin' Out at The Basement

Posted Tuesday 13 Oct 2015

Our generous discount provider The Basement theatre is presenting Young and Hungry - a festival of hot new talent. The 21st Narcissus and The First 7500 Days of My Life will be back-to-back throughout the next two weeks (including Mondays!) so you'll have ample opportunity to catch these two genuinely fantastic shows. Mention your WIFT membership when you book to receive your discount.

Read up on some of the kind things the critics are already saying about Y&H 2015 and take a look at the two groovy teasers if you haven't already. And if you haven't yet reached your selfie quota this week OR if you've ever suspected you'd look great with Saraid Cameron's hair, you're in for a treat - they now have two face-in-hole photo booths set up in the bar for you to goof around with before and after the shows.

Finally Snort will be on Friday as usual and then DJ James Risbey will be bumpin nasty tracks 'til 2 AM. They have some drink specials in the works for late Friday nights so stay tuned for some boozy new developments over the new few weeks.

Then you need some relief and an intelligent look at our national game. Check out the screenings below for WIFT member Miriam Smith's documentary The Ground We Won.


The Ground We Won is a v�rit� documentary study of manhood as observed through the rites and rituals of a rural New Zealand rugby club.

With great bawdiness and camaraderie, an eclectic rugby team of farmers strive to redeem themselves from a long run of bitter losses. In the face of the hefty demands of farming and fatherhood, the Saturday game becomes the focus of the mens' passions and the ground on which their worth is proved.
