Don't miss this opportunity to experience some rare, hilarious & entertaining Ben Elton comedy in Auckland. Seats are strictly limited & filling fast!
Phone hacking? Super injunctions?
Ben Elton focuses on actors, the price of ambition, critics and ‘journalistic liberty’ in this astutely observational ‘comic revenge tragedy’. His dry satirical view on the slick and savage world of the tabloid press portrays a protagonist, Doris Wallace, who has clawed her way to celebrity success as a merciless and vicious critic; "I'm the nasty cow who slaughters the sacred cows." She is on the verge of a glorious venture in TV. Moreover, she’s not going to let anything get in her way; not even the 'silly cow' suing her for libel. After the case goes to court, Doris naturally believes she has won but has she? The course of events that follow is hilarious, and at times cutting, but will keep you laughing until your sides hurt.
