Event: The Heartbreak Choir – Feb 2023

Auckland Theatre Company kicks off the year with the New Zealand premiere of comedy The Heartbreak Choir by award-winning Australian playwright Aidan Fennessy. Starring some of New Zealand’s funniest actors in full voice and directed by Lara Macgregor, this effervescent, hilarious and big-hearted summer comedy makes a big noise.

If you want to be in, then you must be supportive, tolerant, giving and collegiate. Or else!

There’s been a bit of drama in the local choir. Splintering off from the original group, a small band of oddballs have gathered in a quintessentially country town hall to begin again. It’s cold, it’s musty and the heater is on the blink. But they’ve got a new name, they’ve got their voices and they’ve got each other. All they need now is a song to sing. Will our heroes find a way to harmonise?

Ella Fitzgerald once said, “the only thing better than singing is more singing”. The Heartbreak Choir is a testament to the power of community and the possibility that can be found in healing. This Aussie hit is packed with glorious song and tiny little miracles of friendship and optimism. Wild, wonderful comedy that will charm its way into your hearts. The perfect start to your year of theatre.

“Big voices, small town politics, and a collective desire to be and do good: for each other and for the greater community.” – ArtsHub Australia
