Back to All Events


Iconic NZ actor and screen legend Ian Mune returns to the stage to star in one of the most anticipated theatrical events of the summer. From award-winning theatre makers Carl Bland and Ben Crowder comes the premiere of SPIRIT HOUSE playing at the Herald Theatre from 16 February – 5 March.

Alongside the mighty Mune, in this haunting and startling theatrical event are acting heavyweights Mia Blake (The Book of Everything, Angels in America), Tim Carlsen (One Day Moko, Dirty Laundry) and a giant 6-foot cat called Claude.

Two artists occupy the same studio in Nong Khai: one in 1932, the other in 2017. Yet both are visited by the same woman. Who is she? What does she want? And how can she exist in two times at once? Both men will be forced to come to terms with what they have been trying oh-so-hard to forget. 

SPIRIT HOUSE will be vivid, wild, entertaining, dramatic, beautiful, funny, provocative and will see this visionary company yet again attempt to stage the impossible. 

Herald Theatre Thursday 16 February – Sunday 5 March
Thursdays – Saturdays at 8pm. Tuesday and Wednesday at 7pm. Sundays at 4pm.
