One Night Stand




Show Info


Unfortunately, One Night Stand has had to withdraw from the NZ Fringe Festival and BATS.


Are you ready for a One Night Stand with the law? Then spend a riotous evening with Captain Ruin, your friendly neighbourhood anarchist, in his New Zealand debut.

Described as "Australia's Harry Houdini" (John Safran, Triple J), One Night Stand finds him sharing stories about politics, prisons and punchlines with characteristic charm, death defying physical antics and a ferocious wit.

Inspired by the true story of the performer's incarceration, and using escapology, stage illusion, side show, tattooed striptease, and his circus skills, Captain Ruin beguiles the audience with tales of his many adventures, while also inspiring them to challenge the accepted realities of our modern world.

By equal measures both poignant and hilarious, this is circus with a refreshing social conscience, that provides an intelligent take on the forces that motivate us all.

Following acclaimed and sold out seasons in Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne, now it's New Zealand's turn to enjoy this engaging performance that has been described as:

"thought provoking, amusing and highly recommended" - arts.hub.com.au

"a raw, raunchy, punk variety show" - agendacity.com

"great fun to watch...quirky and unique" - The West Australian

Don't miss it!
