‘The Pickle King’ – win tickets


george-sasha-and-jeenaRip the lid off a jar of utterly delicious theatre, bursting with wit, wonder and the faint whiff of death.

Sasha, the blind receptionist of the crumbling Empire Hotel, knows she is cursed – everything she loves dies. But when true love finds her, she can’t help falling. One night, Death checks into the hotel.

Belly laughs combine with throat-catching pathos to create a sophisticated modern fable that is “an intelligent and hilarious celebration of human resilience” – The Scotsman

“It tells a story that interweaves real biographies and events to generate the most elaborate and brilliant fiction.” – The Scotsman, Glasgow

“A piece of total theatre which offers humanity and psychological insight.” – The Dominion Post, Wellington
