Described as 'existential clowning' by The Guardian, Beautiful People is a hilariously dark comedy about ageing and death.

Violet and Norman are an incredibly old couple. It takes them a full 10 minutes to sit down in a chair. Then another five to get up again and fart. Things speed up occasionally when it's time for coffee, or when a shady figure called Arthur arrives and stirs confusing memories of a love triangle…

Beautiful People was awarded the Herald Archangel Award at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019 and has performed in just about every major festival in the UK. This is the first time this highly lauded piece of theatre will be seen by a New Zealand audience.
