Conrad Newport (Live at Six, Entertaining Mr Sloane) directs your favourite petrol station workers as they share their ordinary lives in extraordinary circumstances.

"After the show I made a beeline to get myself a pie, chips and toffee pops... and found myself voyeuristically curious about the lives behind the faces behind the counter... Its high-octane humour will have you laughing and cringing magnanimously - and long after you leave the venue." SIan Robertson, Theatreview, June 2008

It's not everyday you see a Cambodian, Sri Lankan and 3 Pakeha on stage together. GAS is supported by Asia New Zealand Foundation and prides itself on representing a multicultural workforce as they collide with each other in a modern day New Zealand metropolis.
