Media Release


The Playground
Collective in collaboration with Q Presents

Back in New Zealand after their
huge success at La Mama in New York, award winning theatre
company The Playground Collective in
collaboration with Q Presents, promises to deliver on its
title, giving Auckland audiences All Your Wants and Needs
Fulfilled Forever
in a night out at Q Loft, 9th – 19

Video games, porn and his pet rats; Simon
successfully distracts himself from the recent death of his
father using all the tools at his disposal – until a
mysterious box arrives that promises to change his life
forever. He will suffer. He will overcome. The Solution will
be revealed. This might just be the one that cracks it

From the team that brought you Like There’s
No Tomorrow
and The Intricate Art of Actually Caring;
nominated for Five Chapman Tripp Theatre
, this existential comedy dissects the
stories we all tell ourselves as we try to make meaning from
the chaos. Written by The Playground Collective core-member
Eli Kent (The Intricate Art of Actually
Caring, Black Confetti)All Your Wants and Needs Fulfilled
attempts to do exactly what the title says by
exploring how to make the perfect show and ensure audiences
aren’t left disappointed.

Eli and director Robin
recently took the show to New York City where
they were given the largest venue in the New Zealand New
Performance Festival
New York where they earned a
4 ½ star review from The Public Review, New York . Now they
have teamed up with producer Molly O’Shea,
a core member of the elusive theatre company You
Me Bum Bum Train
, which had 80,000 Londoners scrambling
for tickets in 2011. Together they are excited to bring
All Your Wants and Needs Fulfilled Forever back to
New Zealand and to its newest audience; Auckland.
Performing in All Your Wants and Needs Fulfilled Forever
will be the award winning writer himself Eli Kent,
Joel Baxendale (Binge Culture Collective)
and Victoria Abbott (Caterpillars, Ash
vs. Evil Dead).

exceptional work of theatre, striking the perfect balance
between artifice and its acknowledgement; between
emotionally affecting storytelling and uncomfortable humour;
between literal narrative and visually poetic live art” –
The Public Review, New York
