"All too amusingly real... hilarious and touching at the same time." Dominion Post
A comedy of sizzling summer shenanigans.
From the award-winning writer of LE SUD, THE TUTOR and NIU SILA comes a cracker of a comedy, set in a classic New Zealand motor camp.
Two couples. Two caravans. Two teenagers. Frank Redmond, a left-wing literacy lecturer, subjects his long-suffering wife and daughter to a run-in with their garrulous camp neighbours: Mike Hislop, a redneck builder, his social-climbing partner Dawn Tairoa and her hormonally charged son, Jarod.
A gloriously funny take on our annual Kiwi camping rituals.
“Dave Armstrong has established himself as one of New Zealand’s most popular playwrights with his laugh-a-minute satires playing to packed houses up and down the country. Now his latest play, THE MOTOR CAMP, looks set to join that winners’ club. The perfect après-holiday comedy about the surprising ups and annoying downs of your summer camping experiences .” – Colin McColl
