But when the all-female group invite their husbands to join them, everyone is forced to contend with a lot more than just Virginia Woolf. Opinions are challenged, suspicions aroused and tempers flare as their lives unravel into a saga to rival even the most outrageous fiction. Two Englishmen have taken to bending the truth to add a dash of excitement to their lives.

A revival to mark HLT’s diamond jubilee, this play overflows with razor- sharp wit, sublime elegance and dizzy romantic comedy. It’s the middle of the night and Leo has just arrived at his grandmother’s West Village apartment. After an arduous cross- country ride, the rudderless 21-year-old is seeking refuge.

Set in a Chinese-owned fish and chip shop, the play follows a new romance between Pakeha employee Jason and the owner’s daughter. The path of true love never runs smoothly, however, and family and cultural differences threaten to derail their relationship. A hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking look at Kiwi culture. Con- tains adult language and content. Doors slam and chaos reigns in this hilarious comedy that follows a touring theatre company as they rehearse, perform and try to make it through Nothing On. This To ny Award-nominated play will keep you in stitches as the neverending mishaps snowball out of control. This intricately crafted mayhem has been hailed as one of the funniest comedies ever written. *conditions apply 124191 www.times.co.nz Times Newspapers Christmas Supplement – 7 THE HUB, 451 TI RAKAU DR, BOTANY.

He was the first man to eat turkey on the auspicious occasion. • Knowing what one meaning for “mistletoe” actually means might make some people less inclined to stand beneath for a festive kiss. The plant has a symbiotic relationship with a bird called the mistle thrush. The bird eats the berries, digests the seeds and then leaves droppings which eventually grow into new mistletoe plants. Subsequently, the Germanic word for mistletoe literally means ‘dung on a twig’. • Rudolph, the legendary red-nosed reindeer was a late addition to Santa’s stable. He was the brainchild of Montgomery Ward, who created it for the purpose of a holiday promotion in the late 1930s. Did you know?...
