'RED CARD': An Original Comedy from DRAMASOC

  • Jack Mann Auditorium 53 Solway Avenue Christchurch, Canterbury, 8041 New Zealand (map)

Every flat has a night they’ll never forget – whether they want to or not.

Five flatmates, who’ve never done much partying together, are pulled into a compulsory flat party (“red card”) the night before one of them leaves for the other side of the world. As the night wears on, drinking games are played, reminisces are had, relationships are explored, toasted sandwiches are eaten, gatecrashers are weathered, hook-ups are hooked-up… and something catches on fire, all in the midst of an on-going war with the neighbours.



Written and directed by Sebastian Boyle (The Civilian), Red Card explores all the classic dynamics of student life in a hilarious and kind-of uplifting way. It’s a night they’ll ever forget – and neither will you.

Featuring Katrina Clark, Rose Maguire, Patrick Pieters, Dan Richardson,James van Dyk; with Wills Dobson, Dana Koliadiuk, Sarah Sonal, Poppy Stowell, Harriet Wise, and Paul Johnson.

Assistant Direction by Kate Wilkinson
