Where hardened inmates come face-to-face with a whole new nightmare: Shakespeare classes with Miss Lucy!
Eight counts of unlawful entry using imagination, five counts of reckless use of Maori mythology, four counts of possession and cultivation of Shakespeare, and one count of dangerous operation of a voice class.
Some are looking to improve their parole chances, others want to kill some time and one just wants to kill. A tour de force of stage craft, Cellfish challenges two actors to portray a fast-paced interwoven story featuring seven characters. The result is a funny and insightfully gripping work that takes us behind the walls of a New Zealand Correctional Facility and into the minds of its residents.
After standout seasons at Auckland Arts Festival and Silo Theatre, Cellfish is touring Aotearoa for the first time in 2019.
