The second coming is coming…
You're young, free and single and haven't had sex for eleven and a half months, then one morning you wake up pregnant, and the Angel Gabriel is on your doorstep claiming it’s the son of God growing in your womb. Suddenly, three more potential fathers claim parentage: an ex-boyfriend, a geek from school… and the Devil himself. Things quickly spiral into farcical confusion and important questions emerge: how does the modern woman deal with the Immaculate Conception? What happened to pro-choice? How do you tell the son of God that if he doesn't do his homework he'll amount to nothing? Will God pay child support?
By multi-award winning UK writer, Oliver Lansley, Immaculate premiered at the 2005 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where Metro hailed it as "genuinely a laugh a minute" and The British Theatre Guide declared "'in a Fringe which is filled with comedies, this has to be one of the funniest.” Led by one of New Zealand’s freshest new directing talents, Melanie Camp (Summer Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night), this quirky comedy is brought to life by a talented cast of internationally trained actors: Rebecca Parker, Stuart Lawson, Todd Dixon, Tommy Truss, Tess Jamieson-Karaha and Aidan Weekes.
Produced by Backyard Theatre.
