Following award-winning seasons at the 2015 Melbourne Fringe and Adelaide Fringe We May Have to Choose makes its New Zealand debut at the Auckland Fringe from 21-25 February before heading to NZ Fringe in Wellington from 2-11 March 2017.
In today's western democracies, free speech is often divisive and morally ambiguous. But when one woman lists 621 of her worldly opinions in one go - opinions about hot water systems, for a start, but also about homelessness, the Loch Ness Monster, Russian diets, Kylie Minogue, and economics – we are offered a riveting and genuinely unique opportunity to reflect on the way we live our lives.
We May Have to Choose sees Melbourne-based kiwi director Prue Clark (two-time Green Room nominee for Reasons to Stay Inside and Dropped) shape Emma Hall’s stunning solo performance of this fantastical ride through the subconscious mind. Accompanied by a musical score by indie-electric folk artist SS. Sebastian (Brett Harris), this international fringe favourite is a funny, withering, and moving piece about the fallibility of thought in our quest to solve the riddles of our world.
★★★★★ "5/5 - beautifully simple, intensely clever... intimate, funny, honest and unlike anything I've seen at the Fringe this year" - Bethan Highgate-Betts, ThreeWeeks
