1950s, the rural plains of Southern New Zealand. She has to go, he can’t let her. A couple’s past unravels in a tender, playful and bruising encounter.
As Tom and Elizabeth face their final struggle and look back over their lives, their darkest secrets, fears and desires are laid bare as fractured moments of violence and memory play out around an old, decaying farm.
Based on Dennis Glover's iconic kiwi poem ‘The Magpies’, Skin Tight is a fierce portrayal of our need to hold onto love and the past, and to find a place to truly belong.
Southern Magpie revive their 5* production of one of New Zealand’s most beloved plays.
