The University of Canterbury Drama Society Incorporated

We're a student society, that doubles as a theatre company, with almost 100 years of experience running shows, festivals, and general hi-jinks. We aim to produce quality shows, promote a safe space to give theatre a go, and support drama and performing arts in the wider Christchurch community.

A Day 2 Play

  • DW1, Jack Mann Auditorium 53 Solway Ave Christchurch, Canterbury, 8041 New Zealand (map)

A Day 2 Play returns!


DramaSoc's very own play competition that gives you 24 hours to write, workshop, learn and perfect an original piece of theatre before putting it on stage is back! Whether you're a theatre veteran who could learn a script with your eyes closed, or a brand new, bushy-tailed performer who wants to give it a go, this is the event for you.




Just come to Bentleys from 7:00 with your ID and $4.




  • The playwright, a modern day Willy Shakespeare
  • The director, Fosse reborn
  • The actor, star of the show
  • The audience, benevolent benefactors ($5 entry fee)
  • Or you can mix and match as you see fit!


To book your spot or to ask any questions, go to www.dramasoc.org.nz/ad2p-signup or send an email to AD2P@dramasoc.org.nz. It's free to join in!

Because we are in Bentleys (a licensed venue) for the performance, all actors/directors must be 18 or have a parent/guardian with them on Saturday afternoon/evening.
