‘A drama that’s as piercing as it is potent.’
Making art from life at school.
At a prestigious Auckland drama school, a class of nervous first-year students meet their intimidating new teacher, Hannah (Kerry Fox). Stanley (James Rolleston; The Dark Horse, 2016 PIAF) is the least confident of the bunch, but comes to life when the class is told to devise an end-of-year play. He suggests they adapt a real-life scandal involving a tennis teacher and Victoria, a girl they all know. Stanley’s classmates are energised, but what he doesn’t reveal is that he’s dating Victoria’s sister... Spiky, funny and with a gripping finale, The Rehearsal is a class Kiwi act.
