Gift Of The Gab

Project 2014-11-07 19:21:53 +1300

The future of cinema is at stake in this original show featuring some of Hollywood’s biggest names, with a twist; they’re all portrayed by a single actor.

Gift of the Gab is a devised show that combines film and theatre to tell the story of Gab, a young cinema worker who teams up with the legendary Sir Ian McKellen to stop Hollywood’s most deadly weapon – a film so vapid and soulless that it will melt the brain of anyone who watches it. Realising that behind this monstrosity is none other than a power-crazed Alan Rickman, they find themselves on a mission to put the heart and soul back into cinema before the entire world is "dumbenated".

With Our Powers Combined is a theatre co-operative created as a collaboration between Sceptre Theatre, Killer Darlings Collective and Red Scare Collective. Our members are Matt Loveranes (director), James Cain (performer), Cassandra Tse (production manager), Oliver Devlin (sound designer) and Rowan McShane (lighting designer), with all members also serving as co-devisors of the show.

We're planning to take our show on tour to the Auckland Fringe Festival as well as performing a New Zealand Fringe Festival season here in Wellington and we're looking to raise $750 of crowd-funding in order to pay for touring costs, equipment hire, and other bits and pieces.
