Pure and Deep written and directed by Toa Fraser

Details: November 12 – 23 at Herald Theatre. Buy tickets here. Celebrated New Zealand film director and playwright Toa Fraser returns to the stage with the highly anticipated premiere of his new play Pure and Deep. This independent sequel to the iconic kiwi classic Bare is long overdue and comes hot on the heels of the New Zealand premiere of his internationally acclaimed feature film The Dead Lands. Toa Fraser has been long celebrated as one of New Zealand’s most treasured writers and directors. It was his second play No.2 with its subsequent film rendition that catapulted him into the international arena winning numerous awards and paving the way for his second award winning feature Dean Spanley. But he cut his teeth on his first full-length play – the hugely successful two hander Bare. Described by Metro magazine as an ‘an instant classic’ this went on to tour extensively and win awards. Pure and Deep plucks two characters from this late 90’s era and presents them right here right now, facing the contemporary quandary of how to find meaningful, lasting relationships in a hyper-connected world.
