At 305 Queen Street, Auckland’s creatives gather. Early morning coffee catch ups, afternoon scone fuelled brainstorms and wine-time read-throughs.

No theme, no agenda, just great stories and great ideas brought to the table by NZ’s independent creative makers.

Since 2012, Q Presents has offered audiences the chance to feast on the crème de la crème of unadulterated storytelling. Each event is completely unique and encapsulating, and smashes expectations of what a damn excellent night out at the theatre can be.

Brought to you by the uncompromising Bullet Heart Club, The Pantograph Punch, Fractious Tash, LOT23, The PlayGround Collective and Fireplace. 2015’s handpicked Q Presents season is here to devour this winter and brings with it a platter of salty sweet goodness so delicious it'll be worth switching the phone off for an hour or so and giving your undivided attention.



The team behind the award-winning Daffodils are back with a chilling story about 2 lonely souls, self-fulfillment & deliberate destruction. Electronic alt-theatre bound to take you captive.
