The Book of Everything
No More Dancing in the Good Room
We saw this show in 2015 — we laughed, we cried and now we’re really happy to be supporting Chris Parker (HUDSON & HALLS LIVE!), director Jo Randerson and producer Sophie Dowson as they bring it to Q Theatre Loft and to you as part of our 2016 offering.
Chris is putting on another one of his little dance shows. It’s 1999 and he’s not allowed to do it in the ‘Good Room’ – Mum says his limbs are getting too long and Dad thinks he should keep a lid on it.
An unruly mash-up of theatre, dance and home videos, this is a hilarious and moving account of a young gay boy growing up in middle-class Christchurch, realising he’s more ‘Lord of the Dance’ than ‘1st XV’.
NO MORE DANCING IN THE GOOD ROOM is an autobiographical solo piece that premiered in the 2015 New Zealand International Comedy Festival to rave reviews, sold out houses and earned Chris a Best Newcomer Award.
