Written & Directed by Emily Duncan

Venue: The Beautiful Science Gallery, Otago Museum


Prospect Park Productions is proud to present the premiere experience of Le Sujet Parle, an immersive theatrical exploration of what lies behind. Staged in the Beautiful Science Gallery (Otago Museum), we invite you to move around the space, while the strands of performance wrap themselves around you. Innovative and provocative, Le Suje Parle weaves live performance, image and sound to immerse the viewer and merge the lines between what we see/the seen.

Featuring striking design from local legend Stephen Kilroy, and an award winning script (Playmarket’s Plays for the Young, 2014) by current Burns Fellow, Emily Duncan, Le Sujet Parle is not to be missed.

Suitable for ages 13+, limited capacity.

Prospect Park Productions was founded in 2016 by Dunedin natives, producer H-J Kilkelly and playwright Emily Duncan, bringing together decades of combined theatre experience. PPP’s first production, Hold Me, played to sell-out houses at BATS Theatre and Emily received a Best New NZ Playwright nomination in the Wellington Theatre Awards for the script. Shaken, set in post- 2011 earthquake Christchurch, garnered a best actor award in the 2016 Short + Sweet Festival (Wellington).

In 2018, they launched the three-part thriller podcast, Dark Dunedin: Heaven Looks On during the Dunedin Fringe Festival, which won the City of Literature Beyond Words Award in association with Dunedin UNESCO City of Literature, and premiered the critically acclaimed Eloise in the Middle at DPAG.

Prospect Park Productions delivers professionally developed and presented performance art (theatre, podcast, visual), and is currently redeveloping a mentoring programme for new and emerging local playwrights.
