CELLFISH

What happens when a Shakespeare drama teacher meets a bunch of hardened criminals?

Eight counts of unlawful entry using imagination, five counts of reckless use of Māori mythology, four counts possession and cultivation of Shakespeare, and one count dangerous operation of a voice class… 

Following rave reviews at the Auckland Arts Festival, Taki Rua and TOA presents Cellfish, where hardened inmates come face to face with a whole new nightmare: Shakespeare classes with Miss Lucy! Some are looking to improve their parole chances, others want to kill some time and one just wants to kill. 

Funny and insightful, this gripping new work takes us behind the walls of a New Zealand Correctional Facility and into the minds of its residents. 
Starring highly-acclaimed actors Jason Te Kare and Carrie Green, Cellfish gives agency to the voiceless. 

After standout seasons at Auckland Arts Festival and Silo Theatre, Cellfish is touring Aotearoa for the first time in 2019.

“Hilarious, stimulating and profoundly on point!” – The Spinoff
