Kiwifruit Poster FinalBy Carl Nixon and Craig Cooper – Directed by Liz Alpine

Kiwifruits is a New Zealand fairy tale. Not a children’s show, though, but a pantomime for adults with music, prince, down-trodden heroine, witch, femme fatale AND drag queens!! Fay Gay tells her fellow drag performer Tatania the story of how the Castle Road Tavern was turned from a straight-up working men’s pub into a venue for spectacular drag shows. Kiwifruits is a mad free-wheeling Kiwi version of the Cinderella story.
