Roger Hall’s classic hit comedy is a riotous road trip through Italy with two couples who have very different holiday expectations from the same trip.
Venice! Rome! Tuscany!
It’s 2007 and guide book in hand, recently retired librarians Alison and Adrian are excitedly embarking on their long-awaited, carefully saved for and meticulously planned Italian trip of a life-time. But when their best friends pull out at the last minute, they find themselves sharing their precious holiday with their new neighbours – Harry, a wealthy plumber and his second – but not a trophy! – wife, Judy.
As these delightfully mismatched couples valiantly negotiate late flights, missed bookings, changed plans and Rome’s infamous Ring Road, it’s not just the Italians the intrepid travellers have to deal with – it’s also each other!
Blending cracker one-liners with lots of laughs and astute observation, Four Flat Whites in Italy is classic Roger Hall, as he reveals the very essence of what it is to be a Kiwi – our manners, morals, loves and longings – in this highly entertaining comedy.
Directed by Ross Jordan, Braden Lister (Assistant Director), Rachel Southby, Sarah Upston and Euan Lucie-Smith bring this witty show to life.
Laugh out loud comedy that tugs at the heartstrings.
