Making Super City II

September 10, 2013

Pushing the boundaries of comedy in all directions, the characters of Super City‘s second season are at once more relatable and more outrageous.

In an era when more and more actors branch into writing and directing their own work, we look closely at this collaboration between some of NZs best acting/writing talent. What is the relationship between acting and writing? And how does the writing process change when you are creating characters for yourself to play?

Join us to hear Madeleine Sami and Tom Sainsbury talk to chair Leanne Saunders about the relationship between acting and writing, co-writing and developing the new characters for season two.

Auckland-based comedy TV series Super City currently airs its second season after a successful first season in 2012. The show is a collaboration between some of NZ’s best talents; actor/writer Madeleine Sami, actor/writer Tom Sainsbury and writer/director Oscar Kightley.

Stay afterwards for a slice of pizza on us and a drink.

Tuesday 24 September, drinks 7pm, talk 7:30-8:30pm, The Classic, 321 Queen Street, $5 koha appreciated.
