Roger Hall's EASY MONEY Comes to The Court

Roger Hall's EASY MONEY Comes to The CourtThere's no such thing as a free lunch - something the characters in Roger Hall's newest play will find out when they take to The Court Theatre's mainstage this March for the world debut of Easy Money.

Adapted from the 17th Century play The Alchemist, Easy Money is a hilarious romp which follows two Australian con artists, Trudi & Stephen Sharp, as they try to fool their prestigious Auckland neighbours into buying shares in the Auckland Harbour Bridge.

Trudi & Stephen say that they've got knowledge of a congestion toll that will send shares skyrocketing... If, in fact, there are any shares to sell.

A laugh-a-minute satire about greed, Easy Money is a plot driven farce that Hall describes as having, "no moral, no message - just entertainment."

Featuring Roy Snow and Luanne Gordon, director Ross Gumbley has assembled a dream cast. "I've got a cast who are wonderful actors and packed with funny bones."

Gumbley isn't worried about the relevancy of a production based off a 17th Century script. "We're all susceptible to greed. That's what the play's about and what's extraordinary about that, is that the idea hasn't changed in 400 years."

Easy Money opens at The Court on 17th March and runs through until 14th April. Bookings: phone 03 963 0870 or visit
