Richard Meros was the creative force behind – On the Conditions and Possibilities of Helen Clark Taking Me as Her Young Lover. I blogged in 2008:
When I first heard about this play, I thought I would rather play lawn bowls than go see it. But then just as the season in Wellington was ending, I started to hear good things about it. …
I was pissed off I missed seeing it. But then it opened in Auckland. So I extended one of my trips to Auckland to stay on for it. And it was fucking hilarious. Don’t be mistaken by the title into thinking you will not enjoy this is you are right of centre. There were National MPs in the audience laughing as hard as anyone.
So while past performance is not guarantee of future success, I have high expectations for his latest work – especially as Arthur Meek stars again. The video above gives you an idea of what it is about.
