Razor Boys

The Dashing Rocks

An inner-city Wellington flat is the setting and the stage for a tense new play from three award-winning theatre makers. 

Wellington Theatre Award winning actors Alex Greig (The Surprise Party, The Pink Hammer) and Paul Waggott (The Road That Wasn't There, UK podcast The Offensive) are local jazz musicians with a volatile friendship in Razor Boys, the new play from NZ Fringe Award winning writer Jonny Potts (The Nose, Loose: A Private History of Booze and Iggy Pop 1996-2015).

Razor Boys will be staged where it is set: a real Wellington flat. The audience will see these two acclaimed actors up close as their characters wrestle with their past mistakes and attempt to forge their futures. This intimate, real-world environment will be used to reveal the ways in which frustrated men can relate to one another behind closed doors.

The action takes place in the hot, empty week in Wellington between Christmas and New Year's Eve, 2009. To Sam and Al, the capital is a quiet, boozy playground with little else to do but hang out, play gigs and smoke cigarettes. But the coming decade is set to bring about big changes for the old friends, and their pasts are catching up with them. Say the wrong thing, and things could explode. 

Razor Boys is a tightly-wound piece of local realism from the writer of The Best Show in Town is at Your Place Every Night ("... one of the most complex solo performances I've ever seen" - Annabella Gamboni, Art Murmurs). It promises to be a unique theatre experience, featuring two of the capital's most compelling and acclaimed youngish actors playing two guilt-ridden and desperate youngish jazz musicians. 

If you're looking to see real people making really bad decisions, don't go past Razor Boys this NZ Fringe.
