Roger Hall’s classic Kiwi comedy, Social Climbers is an insightful situational comedy, and a hilarious tale of adventure and discovery.
A high school teacher (reluctantly accompanied by her 22 year old daughter) and four of her female colleagues, embark on a expedition of bushwalking and tramping in the mountains for their mid-term break.
Matters become complicated when a bridge-washout maroons the unlikely sextet in a hut spectacularly devoid of home-comforts.
Armed with wine casks and wit, they hunker down for a girls-night-out of a very different sort. The women share laughter and tears, as they encounter truth, consequences, and unexpected revelations…

Earlybird tickets for Social Climbers are available now until 19th February, so be in quick to get the best seats in the house:

Lighting! You just wouldn’t believe how the dimmers worked. The dimmers in those days were large glass jars full of saline solution and they had metal plates… Evie Atkinson used to work them on strings. And they used to raise these out of the jars and the lights would dim.

Describing the old primitive lighting

A good prompt will always know… usually you can tell by their eyes, because if someone really needs a prompt, the eyes go absolutely glazed and you can tell the stress…

If you prompt when they don’t want it – you are wrong. If you don’t prompt when they do want it – you are wrong. And if you do the job perfectly no one takes any notice of you and no one knows you are there, at all.
