'COW' and 'FOLD'
This double bill of Jo Randerson plays, staged by Carving in Ice, offers a unique opportunity for Waikato audiences to see two of Jo Randerson's plays, Fold and Cow, on the same evening. This cast of Waikato University Hillary scholars, theatre students and community actors revel in the chance to work on these non-naturalistic plays. Fold and Cow: refreshing, absurd, surreal, impish, irreverent, grotesque, puzzling and hilarious in turn.
Ever so slightly surreal; a wry look at the New Zealand family and the pressures of conformist society.
Beth's heart is set on making a cow out of leaves, but with a father who believes he is a cat and several opinionated interlopers will she realise her dream?
Friends without benefits. A play about parties, presents, pegs and clean underwear.
Witty, grotesque, refreshing and chilling; a mockery of pretension, self-obsession and self-delusion.
