WIFTNZ special for Weave at the Basement

Posted Monday 03 Apr 2017


Ever wanted to know what your neighbour's story was, your boss's, the woman's standing by the street late at night?

Weave - Yarns with New Zealanders is a new verbatim show performed by Kate McGill and directed by Alice Canton, premiering at Basement Theatre tonight (April 4) and running until April 15. And there's a special industry deal for WIFTNZ members...

WIFTNZ member (and our office whiz on Mondays) Kate McGill has travelled the country to interview Kiwis from all walks of life as an investigation into the New Zealand 'character' and identity. You'll meet the bubbly nurse from the Manawatu, the first-generation Kiwi musician, the South Island farmer; you'll meet the writer who remembers meeting the soldier, his father, for the first time during the Second World War, and much more.

Weave promises an entertaining and thought-provoking investigation into what it means to be a New Zealander. WIFTNZ members can buy $15 tickets with the promo code INDUSTRY - plus, show your WIFTNZ membership card for artists' drinks rates at the bar.

Book now at bit.ly/WeaveNZ or by calling 09 361-1000. For more information about the show, check out the Facebook page at bit.ly/WeaveFB. See you there!

Based on an incredible true story, Denial is a gripping drama recounting Deborah E. Lipstadt's (Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz, pictured) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier.

Denial opens in NZ cinemas on April 13, and we have 5 x double passes to give away.

Just watch the trailer and answer this simple question: What was the initial accusation made by Deborah Lipstadt against David Irving?
