Charged with intensity and passion, Skin Tight is a story that will stay with you for a long time to come.
Tom and Elizabeth share the tale of their lives together through triumph and loss, joy and pain.
In the rustic setting of rural south Canterbury post war, they delight in the trivial things and mourn the greatest losses of all. The audience is gripped from the outset by a relationship that is at once tempestuous, touching, amusing and utterly engaging.
Inspired by Dennis Glover’s classic poem, The Magpies, Gary Henderson’s stirring opus of yearning and memory won a Fringe First Award at Edinburgh.
This masterpiece of New Zealand theatre is humorous, poignant and moving, an experience rich with sensuality and emotion.
Share in a timelessly passionate and powerful love story. Of the recent Court theatre season in Christchurch the reviewer said :
“The actors inhabit their roles as if they knew no other life. Sia Trokenheim is lithe and spontaneous as Elizabeth. Her total conviction is matched by a beautifully judged performance from Matt Hudson as Tom. Both have the ability and control to refine their roles with telling detail.” Lindsay Clark, theatreview.org.nz
