This provocative new comedy pokes fun at three cultures, two islands and one country.
Imagine a French speaking, socialist South Island where people only work 30 hours a week and enjoy long wine-fuelled lunches.
Neighbouring North Zealand, where the people speak English, is debt ridden, starved of electricity and floundering under an awkward coalition.
With a crisis looming North Zealand sends a delegation south to Wanaka du Lac to get the goodwill - and the electricity-flowing north.
With comically outrageous plots and power plays, cultural clashes and sexual shenanigans, LE SUD has more bang than a French nuclear test.
Warning: This play makes many hilarious jabs at the political, sporting, religious, racial and cultural values that New Zealanders hold dear!
