  • Bentley's 90 Ilam Rd Christchurch, Canterbury, 8041 New Zealand (map)

DramaSoc's newest competition event is coming to the Bentley's stage as a part of Music and Arts in May!



Get ready for a night of never-before-seen plays; written, directed and performed by your fellow students (and honorary students 😉). All prepared within 48 hours before they come on stage and compete for the audience’s attention and applause. Also in the event will be some improv fun from the Say What? troupe.

If you are up to the task you can come as you are, or with a friend or 2 and you’ll find yourself grouped with other fellows for a challenge to create something from prompts and props handed to you only 48 hours before the house lights come down.




  • Participant Briefing: 6:30pm Friday 24th May - Jack Mann Auditorium

  • Competition Start: 7pm Friday 24th May - Jack Mann Auditorium

  • Performance Start: 7pm Sunday 26th May - Bentley’s Bar
