Ōtepoti | Dunedin

Suitcase Theatre presents another landmark production for the 2023 Dunedin Fringe Festival with their adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic short story Lamb to the Slaughter. Loved by all (but especially those who enjoy a great 1950's set, and a deliciously poetic tale), director Laura Wells serves up an intriguing (though brief) feast. Join us as the characters investigate a suspicious death, with new characters, added intrigue and an ending cleverly twisted around to keep you on the edge of your seat.

All-local cast, featuring Kimberley Buchan in the leading role of Mary Maloney.

Suitcase Theatre are proud to be partnering with local charity Stopping Violence Dunedin to support their critical work in our community.
