About the play

Please note that some language and sexual references may offend.

Fern unexpectedly comes home and finds mum Meryl, who usually leads a quiet life, preparing for guests. Guests she apparently doesn't want there, or for Fern to meet.


The guests are Fern's aunt Neva and Neva's eccentric and mildly confused lover Ann. Fern has never before met these two let alone known of their existence. It's time for the skeletons to come out of the closet.

NZ's Jess Sayer, a multi-award winning playwright and actress currently writing for and acting in Shortland Street as Maeve Mullens, has penned a script involving sharp tongued quips and cutting humour.

Ali Baba and the Magic Cave

by William Glennon, directed by David Blakey

Season: - Fri 7 July - Sat 15 July '23 (no Mon or Tues shows)

William Glennon's original approach to this Arabian Nights tale is fast-moving, action-filled and full of surprises and humour. Our production also includes elements of pantomime and audience participation.

Ali Baba spies a group of thieves who, after saying magic words, cause a strange rumbling sound to come not from the sky but from beneath the earth. This causes a barren hillside to open and reveal a cave loaded with jewels and loot.

Aided by friends, especially the very bright Morgiana, Ali Baba devises a unique plan to capture once and for all the bumbling cut-throats and unmask their leader. Who will it turn out to be?

Season: Fri. 7 - Sat 15 July - No show Mon/Tues.
