HBAF 2022 - Thinning

HBAF 1170x504px THINNING

A play about growth and gravity. In the limbo time between the end of high school and ‘real life’, a group of teenagers leave their city lives behind to go apple thinning.

Join best mates Isaac, Adam, Troy, Lily, Fraggle and Billie as they break-up, hook-up, fall in love, get drunk, fall over and come out in one last explosive summer together before they might never see each other again. In 'Thinning' you meet people you love, people you hate and people just like you.

By arrangement with Playmarket. Performed by the Furnware Ambassadors. Directed by Lisa-Jane Easter.

Furnware Ambassador Programme:
For the past seven years, Furnware’s support has nurtured Hawke’s Bay’s next generation of creatives. Each year the Furnware Ambassador Programme provides a group of secondary students with a unique opportunity to engage with the Festival both on and off-stage – through workshops, performance opportunities, behind the scenes experiences and free access to the Festival programme.

The Furnware Ambassador Programme is facilitated by the Festival’s Education Manager - Lisa-Jane Easter. In 2022 we continue to work in partnership with the Toitoi Creative Leaders Programme, an initiative designed to build relationships throughout the region and provide opportunities for youth to gain a deeper understanding of the Arts Industry.
