Lunchtime theatre is having a trial season at the Southern Cross Pub ... I went along at 1pm sharp, to a 45 min short play written and acted by Asher and Tansey ... $15 for soup, toast and live theatre ... Asher and Tansy graduated last year from the Toi Whakaari: The NZ Drama School. Yet another colourful and rewarding aspect of this little capital city somewhere in the South Pacific!!
