Winning awards at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, this work is a fitting tribute to a true story close to home. Meet Henry Lewis. Everything he touches turns to sold.
Set in 1980s New Zealand when excess defined the decade, Lewis starts out as a nobody wanting to become a somebody. He finds his way into property and eventually makes his fortune in Auckland as a property developer, building the iconic Shangri-La tower in Auckland's Herne Bay.
As the end of the decade nears, an unexpected event will burst Henry’s bubble. With greed, ambition, and the snowball effects of success, power, morality and indeed excess, High Rise is a New Zealand version of a modern-day Icarus.
Hawke’s Bay local Cameron Jones, who recently returned from Los Angeles where he studied at the Stella Adler Academy and the Michael Laskin Studio, takes us on a high-octane journey using elements of clown, mask and physical theatre.
High Rise catapults to its climax with dangerous speed and an ending with a twist that holds the key to this piece.
NB: This production will be set among the development site of the old Herald Tribune Buildings (or the former premises of the HB Today) in Hastings - Corner Queen Street East and Karamu Road North, with access likely from Warren Street, Hastings.
