Anzac Eve

Touring throughout NZ March - May 2017 Book Now

Two Kiwi guys meet two Aussie girls... the rest is history.

Anzac Eve is an exciting new play about a disparate group of 'twentysomethings' on their big OE, who happen upon each other the night before Dawn commemorations at Gallipoli. National pride and personal issues stir up strong feelings as tempers flare, romance sparks and ghosts are uncovered. Each seeing historical events through their own lens, are they really there to solemnly commemorate the occasion or to party until the early hours?

Directed by Jamie McCaskill and Written by Dave Armstrong, Anzac Eve is highly entertaining and takes an honest and unflinching look at the ANZAC experience.

Duration: 60 minutes

Commissioned by the Festival of Colour and funded by NZ WW1 Centenary Fund. Contains some coarse language. 


Tourmakers_schoolsAnzac Eve is able to be performed in schools. 

Anzac Eve is uniquely suited to High School students, with elements of humour, the work highlights historical events in a relatable way. Students have said that they "believed the characters" and could "identify with them."
