Midnight in Moscow (with dinner before at Encore)

Why don't we plan to go to the next Circa One show, with dinner before at Encore?

Here are the details:

Midnight in Moscow

  • Written by: Dean Parker
  • Directed by: Susan Wilson
  • Circa One
  • 11 May − 08 June

Lunches, hunches, romance and the occasional whiff of home.

A provocative, funny and intriguing new play by renowned NZ playwright, Dean Parker.

“Love, spies and lies.” In the NZ Embassy in Moscow in 1947 the staff must question their loyalty to themselves, their friends, and their country, when suspicions arise that someone is leaking classified information. Woven with threads and snippets of real events and characters, and with an inspired portrait of Boris Pasternak, author of Doctor Zhivago, Midnight in Moscow is a thoroughly engaging and thought-provoking play.

“Espionage furnishes fun ingredients for drama … highly entertaining. It gives cause to ponder, as well as smile. Bravo!” – Theatreview

“Fascinating, entertaining, thought provoking” – The Press

“A rich and satisfying work confirming Parker’s place in the ranks of NZ’s most sophisticated playwrights” – David O’Donnell, Australian Drama Studies

Proudly supported Shoreline Partners

Tickets are $46 Adults, $38 Concessions, $39 Groups, $25 Under 25s

We can meet at Encore for dinner at 6pm and then go to the show at 8pm.

RSVP if you want to join us, and I will let you know when your ticket has been booked and is ready to be paid for. Make sure to let me know what ticket price you qualify for and whether or not you want to join us for dinner.

    Very nice evening, thank you Ilona for hosting (I like your 'Bonjour Tristesse' hair style).

    A very pleasant evening with great company. The play was maybe a little heavy for a Friday evening but was entertaining nevertheless. Ilona was looking stunning with her new 'do'!

    A great show, with very contrasting characters and an intriguing storyline. Brilliant job done by the whole cast!

      Hi Fiona, you are not part of the dinner reservation. I will have to check with the restaurant if they can add another seat to the table at this point (the restaurant is quite small and might be booked out) for you in order to join for dessert. I will let you know. Cheers, Cara

      Hi Joy, you have RSVP'd for the Meetup, yes - is that what you mean by confirmation? RSVPing does not mean a ticket is booked, as I mentioned above I need your phone number in order to book your seat in the Circa booking system. I will do that now - please pay today (14 May) by 3pm, by calling the Circa Box Office on 801-7992. Cheers, Cara
