It is 1982, and Roseneath University is kicking off its 99th year as a elite beacon of academic excellence atop Mt Victoria. Still recovering from a tumultuous year of student protests and the scandalous departure of the previous vice chancellor, the staff and students of Rosey U are looking forward to a fresh start. And with new management, new challenges and new relationships await!

From the players who brought you Love Possibly, Micetro, and CSI Wainui, comes the return of Wellington's best and only Improvised Soap Opera - The Young and the WITless. Follow the lives of the staff and students of Roseneath University as WIT weaves a tale of drama, melodrama and mischief with nine shows in nine weeks at The Fringe Bar; every episode totally improvised, every twist and turn a surprise.

And while the performers live in a world where cell phones are a dream of the future, the audience are encouraged to participate by live-tweeting the show. Share photos, quotes, and memorable moments with the hashtag #WITlessSoap.

Drawing on both NZ’s soap tradition (Shortland St, Gloss, Palmolive) and WIT’s own improvisation pedigree The Young and the WITless VI will make you laugh, cry, and feel every emotion a poignant stare into the middle distance can muster.
