HBAF 2019 Presents - Rants In the Dark

42 Lucknow Rd, Havelock North

The hilarious unfiltered truth on parenting. Wellington blogger Emily Writes’ best-selling book Rants in the Dark has been adapted into a play, starring Renee Lyons, Bronwyn Turei and Amelia Reid-Meredith.

Honest, authentic and laugh-out-loud funny, the play revels in the raw truth of parenthood (and grandparenthood) and its ‘mess of contradictions’. It is a biting antidote to judgmental supermarket-tutterers and plane-smirkers everywhere.

Emily’s heartfelt and hilarious writing explores her parenting experience, offering comfort and connection to other exhausted parents all over the world.

Celebrate the truth and hilarity of parenthood and track the impact of what happened when Emily’s blog went viral overnight. Bring your mum, take your husband, shout your wife, take your bestie to a show that will bring delight to you all.

Based on the book by Emily Writes. Adapted for the stage by Mel Dodge, Lyndee-Jane Rutherford & Bevin Linkhorn.
