Breaking news: The Bacchanals stop their terrible neglect of this ‘blog to tell you that they are touring a play!

That’s right, folks – if you haven’t already seen it on our main/proper website or via our Twitter feed, The Bacchanals are touring the South Island from August 25 – September 6 2014 with Dean Parker’s Once We Built A Tower.  You can catch us in the following places on the following dates:

All shows are at 7pm and entry is by koha/donation! The show is two hours long and there’ll be a fifteen minute interval for a cup of tea. We’re exhausted with the effort of telling people how great this show is and what a good time this tour will be, so look to our website for more information on the show and the cast.  Come on down and see us, y’all! you won’t regret it.  Looking forward to seeing you all in the South Island!

Huge huge thanks to our funders & sponsors and in particular to Interislander, Coffee Supreme, Emerging Artists’ Trust Wellington, Pelorus Trust, Creative New Zealand plus Boosted, Playmarket, The Long Hall and everyone else who’s helped us out!  We love you so much it will surely kill us.  Or you.  You decide!

Next time: will The Bacchanals be able to squeeze one more show in before Richard III opens on 15 January 2015??
