And our final show for 2020, opening November 14, is the family classic "A Christmas Carol", adapted by Michael Paller and directed by Mary Gray. It’s Christmas Eve 1843, and friends and family gathered at Charles Dickens’s home ask him to tell a story, but he refuses. If there is going to be a story, each must take part in its telling. And so Dickens’s classic tale unfolds in this fresh approach set in his writing attic. A treat for the whole family. #preeves #hlt

Next year's thriller is Peter James's "Dead Simple", adapted by Shaun McKenna and directed by Nathan Hey, opening September 12. Michael Harrison thinks he has it all: a great career, good friends and a beautiful fiancée. But when his stag-night prank goes horribly wrong, he finds himself buried alive and staring death in the face. As Michael’s fears grow, Detective Roy Grace tries to solve his mysterious disappearance, but he starts to doubt that Michael will be found in time. A New Zealand premiere. #preeves #hlt

When Jack’s mother and her uncontrollable hoarding are about to destroy the family home, Jack gets more than he bargained for.

We have a full fresh lineup at the studio by hlt next year. Our second HLT Studio show is the comedy "NSFW (Not Safe for Work )" by Lucy Kirkwood, directed by Matthew Diesch and opening August 5-8. After Sam loses his job at Doghouse, a men’s magazine where the men always behave badly, he is interviewed for a job at Electra, a glossy women’s magazine where the women objectify each other. NSFW is a hilarious and satirical look at the cut-throat media world where jobs are scarce, beauty standards are savage and personal integrity is a luxury. Adult content. By arrangement with Samuel French and Play Bureau. #preeves #hlt #studiobyhlt

We have a full fresh lineup at the studio by hlt next year. First off the rank is the drama "Dinner with Friends" by Donald Margulies, directed by Meg Sara Andrews and opening from June 3-6. Like any culinary trend, relationships are destined to evolve over time, but can the recipe of friendship retain its zest if the key ingredients begin to change? A fabulous dinner at the home of foodwriters Gabe and Karen proves hard to swallow when Beth drops the bomb that husband Tom wants out of their 12-year marriage. Winner of the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Adult content. #preeves #hlt #studiobyhlt

Opening July 11 is our third show "Viewing Room" by Mark Smith. This New Zealand premiere is directed by Ian Milnes. Driven by his failure to communicate when alive, patriarch Chester Dumbrosky has decided to “return” on the day of his wake to set the record straight and make amends to his family. Understandably, they have mixed emotions about his reawakening, but there are lots of laughs among the angst as they try to heal old wounds. #preeves #hlt

Our second 2020 show, opening May 9, is the Agatha Christie classic "Love from a Stranger", directed by Laurie Mills. Cecily Harrington’s fiancé is overseas when she wins a big lottery and decides to postpone their wedding to take a European trip. Before she leaves, she meets Bruce Lovell, who sweeps her off her feet, marries her, and then takes her to live with him in a remote country cottage. But how well does she really know this handsome stranger? By arrangement with Samuel French and Play Bureau. #preeves #hlt

First up next year, opening February 29, is the NZ premiere of "Stag and Doe" by Mark Crawford, directed by Jake La Jeunesse. Bonnie and Brad are holding a Stag and Doe fundraising event to help pay for their wedding. They agree to share the local hall with Mandy and Rob, whose wedding reception tent has blown down. But both couples are at each other’s throats, the catering staff are in jail and one of the bridesmaids is on the rebound. A hilarious look at small-town weddings gone wrong. #preeves #hlt
