A muscular piece of poetry.
The searing and sensual romance of Elizabeth and Tom. Dark secrets, deep passions, and heart-breaking truths bubble over as lovers savour precious moments together. Set in twentieth-century Canterbury farming heartland, the text remains deeply resonant with striking parallels to the present. As stunningly physical as it is poetic, Skin Tight is a remarkable theatre experience that will leave you with goosebumps.
One of Aotearoa’s most poignant and lasting works of theatre, Skin Tight premiered at BATS Theatre in 1994. It won a coveted Fringe First Award at the 1998 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has been produced in the UK, Australia, South Africa, Europe, Canada, and the USA.
Starring Ella Gilbert and Arlo Gibson
"Skin Tight is to New Zealand theatre what Whale Rider is to New Zealand film. It's about the very heart of New Zealand culture, the New Zealand identity." - NZ Herald
★★★★★ “Brimming with passion on a knife edge, sometimes quite literally, Skin Tight is the real deal.” - What’s On Stage
★★★★★ “Gary Henderson’s inventive script is sometimes shocking, sometimes heart-breaking and sometimes very funny, but also emotionally gripping.” - London Theatre Guide
