Victor Rodger and Robbie Magasiva - Club Paradiso revival

By Saturday Morning | Posted: Saturday July 20, 2019

Four years ago, celebrated playwright Victor Rodger wrote Club Paradiso for its main star, actor Robbie Magasiva.

The play, the inaugural production by FCC, a Pacific Island theatre movement founded by Rodger, was a stark departure for Pasifika theatre at the time, featuring graphic violence and sexual content.

Robbie plays Q, a criminal on the run who bursts into a bar, covered in blood, high on P, and being pursued by police.

Victor Rodger and Robbie Magasiva join Kim to talk about why now is a good time to revive the play, this time for a Wellington audience, details here.
