My Favourite Play

Branwen Millar
Playwright, MA student in Scriptwriting,

There is a great play called Noisy Shadows opening at BATS Theatre this week. It’s written by a Wellingtonian but it’s so great it won an award for Best New Play in California last year and was performed in Santa Barbara to sell out seasons and critical acclaim. “Amazing! Vibrant, original and theatrically inventive. This is the voice of a new generation of playwrights,” claimed the Santa Barbara News-Press, California.

It’s an existential, evocative piece of writing that explores our relationship with the media and the comparatively frivolous inner despair of the individual amidst global chaos.

Director Rachel Lenart says, “The play evolves with a fluidity and grace that is compelling. Millar’s text is intelligent, thought provoking and informative without ever becoming didactic. Her work resonates deeply with truth, delicacy and humanity.”

Playwright Branwen Millar says, “I think we have the best looking cast ever to exist – but apparently there’s no room in Salient to write a news article on it so Jules suggested I do this instead.”

Noisy Shadows is being performed at BATS Theatre from 21-25 March.
