John Collins - In Hemingway's Words
John Collins founded the New York-based experimental theatre company Elevator Repair Service 26 years ago and next year the ensemble brings the show The Select to Aotearoa. The play is a dramatisation of Ernest Hemingway's classic 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises. The story is set after the First World War and explores the angst of the post-war generation through a group of British and Americans attempting to drink away their troubles on a trip to Spain for the running of the bulls. The Select (The Sun Also Rises) runs from February 24 to March 1 in Wellington, as part of the NZ Festival.
