L3 Drama students create an entire community with minimal sets and props, just pure imagination and energy. Brilliant in its simplicity, eloquent in its humor, and with its roots firmly planted in grassroots Aotearoa. As rich, wacky, perceptive, touching, and outright hilarious as a Simpsons episode, yet Kiwi to its marrow. Wheeler's Luck is pure gold.
With no props and a cast size that can range from 2 - 52: a flexibility beloved of all those who have to cater to variably sized and skilled groups - this extraordinary play was a classic from its triumphant opening night in 2004. Since then Wheeler's Luck has been performed to acclaim both professionally as the original two-hander, and in numerous local theatres and schools with an astounding range of cast sizes and production styles.
Based on the book Wheeler's Luck: A Rural Comedy by Nigel Collins, Toby Leach, Da'Mon Andrews, is energising, hilarious, and perceptive. This beautifully written play is pure theatrical magic. NZs beloved classic comedy Wheeler's Luck is a rollicking rural saga based around the citizens of a small community that life seems to have passed by - until, that is, the town mayor plots with an Auckland developer who has plans for an exclusive multi-million dollar resort - and not everyone is happy.
