Papakura Hawkins Youth Theatre

Imagine it – one minute you’re on your way to work and the next you’re dead. Only, not really. Welcome to the world of Mika Sullovan, a nineteen year old girl who falls into a coma and wakes up at “The Cohort Hotel”, a halfway house between earth and the afterlife for souls, spirits and everything in between, owned and operated by the Grim Reaper – more commonly known as Joe (he likes to keep it casual at his metaphysical auberge!).

This outrageous black comedy is the debut work for eighteen year old playwright and actor Daya Czepanski (who most recently featured in Auckland Theatre Company’s ‘DNA’) & in collaboration with Hawkins Youth Theatre Company.

Directed by Ella Becroft (Red Leap Theatre) and Lutz Hamm (Company of Giants), ‘The Cohort Hotel’ is on at Hawkins Theatre from the 3rd-5th of October 2014.
“What a fabulous play and stunning premise. I was hooked from page one!” – Renee Liang, playwright, poet and writer
