And we’re live! The oven’s caught fire, David is drinking and Peter has bad news. Long before Masterchef, there was Hudson & HallsBe transported to a 1980s television studio for big laughs, rum-fuelled showdowns, and some very questionable cooking.

In the closet with the door wide open, Peter Hudson and David Halls were New Zealand’s original great gay love story – and two of our greatest entertainers.

Co-created by theatrical daredevil Kip Chapman (That Bloody Woman), Hudson & Halls Live! gives us a glimpse into the lives of two of New Zealand’s trailblazing personalities at a pivotal point in their career.

Hudson & Halls Live! was commissioned by Silo Theatre with support from Creative New Zealand and Silo Theatre Donor Patrons. The play received its New Zealand premiere at Auckland’s Herald Theatre on November 6 2015.

Written by Kip Chapman with Todd Emerson and Sophie Roberts. Based on an original concept by Todd Emerson and Kip Chapman. With development contributions from the original cast members, Chris Parker, Todd Emerson and Jackie Van Beek.
