Five kids confront the failure of their family unit with anger, lust, and hope in the stage adaptation of The Longest Drink in Town by celebrated award-winning NZ author Tracey Slaughter.
Set on the roadside of small-town New Zealand, The Longest Drink in Town traces the history of a single traumatic event against the crossfire of a weekend handover gone wrong…

Adapted from Slaughter’s dark and dynamic 2015 novella of the same name. The Longest Drink in Town is a brooding, razor sharp snapshot of the internal lives of five children caught in the fallout of a tumultuous parental affair-turned-wife swap. 
Presented by One Question Theatre (No Exit, Pool No Water) in collaboration with Mayhem Literary Journal and co-directed by Dave Taylor and Liam Hinton, The Longest Drink in Town offers a hard-hitting look into the dark side of the quintessential kiwi childhood…  
For mature audiences. Contains depictions of self-harm, sexual themes, strong language.
