The future of Wellington theatre, post Downstage

From Arts on Sunday, 1:31 pm on 22 September 2013

We consider the future for Wellington theatre with Downstage closing its doors for the final time last night. You'll hear from Peter Bland, one of the founders of Downstage nearly fifty years ago as well as theatre critic John Smythe author of a book on the first forty years of Downstage. Plus Stephen Wainwright CEO of Creative NZ, Jane Waddell who has been closely involved with Downstage over the years and is on the board of rival Circa Theatre, and Tim Spite, one of the new generation theatre practitioners who are potentially the biggest losers.
