Quell Horreur!! The South Island run by the French?
Dave Armstrong’s hilarious political satire which sees a British settled North Island (North Zealand) and French colonised South Island (Le Sud) is back by popular demand!
Today Le Sud is a prosperous socialist country where people only work 30 hours a week, enjoy long wine-fuelled lunches, and the popular Prime Minister, Francois Duvauchelle, is a renowned womaniser.
The English-speaking citizens of North Zealand are far less happy. North Zealanders work long hours for little reward, their free-market experiment ended in disaster, and race relations are at rock bottom. Starved of much-needed electricity, North Zealand lives in permanent recession.
Le Sud is the story of a delegation from North Zealand, led by Prime Minister Jim Petersen, who travel south to the beautiful chateau at Wanaka au lac to persuade their rich neighbours to provide them with cheap electricity.
Warning – this play contains many hilarious jabs at the political, sporting, religious, racial and cultural values that New Zealanders hold dear!
