Limbo

Presented by Keane As in collaboration with Believable Arts Management

An original Kiwi stageplay inspired by the 1300s epic poem, Dante's 'Inferno'. David Noble is a washed-up comedian riding on the coattails of fame from years past. Against his best wishes, he is plucked from his debauchery by the benevolent spirit, Virgil. Career, legacy, family - everything is on the line.

As they peel back the layers of wrongs never righted, David is forced to confront the sins of his past to better his future.

'Limbo' was shortlisted in Playmarket’s Playwrights b4 25 competition for 2024 and explores Dante’s original themes of morality, ethics, and loyalty through a modernised lens.

Keane, Williamson and Smith have clearly put a lot of heart into Limbo and the engaging flow of the play is evidence of all their hard work.

'Limbo' is a 75-minute comedy-drama by director Kathy Keane. Co-written by herself, Tom Smith, and Jimmy Williamson. Presented by Keane As and produced by Smith and Williamson’s company, Believable Arts Management.

After a sold-out development season at BATS Theatre this January. We have brought our original play back, with new and improved elements, for a five-night season this July. 'Limbo' was first produced and performed under the umbrella of the Victoria University of Wellington’s Master of Fine Arts Six Degrees Festival at BATS Theatre in January 2024.

Limbo is a fantastic show for so many reasons. The cast has fantastic chemistry and brings so much talent to their characters. The hard work of the crew shines through in the form of the quality of the show.
