A comedy with bite
Written By Jacob Rajan
This deliciously dark comedy hit a nerve at the New Zealand International Festival, captivating audiences and selling out.
Albert is a dentist with a gift for easing others’ pain – but not his own. His long neglected passions are inflamed by a delicate operation on a young woman. In the process of straightening out her teeth will Albert straighten out his life? To complicate matters Albert is haunted by the ghost of William Kemmler, the first person to be executed in the electric chair – and who is encouraging him to make a rather personal extraction.
A brilliant ensemble cast, a live band and richly imaginative visual effects feature in Indian Ink’s trademark style of magical staging and storytelling.
