Summer at Q 2019

The days are long and the nights are hot, as least partly due to the sizzling line up for our Summer at Q season.

From explorations of monogamy, feminism and the end of the world, to karaoke, Greek myths and the next generation of brilliant comedians. Shakespeare sits alongside playlists of the ultimate NZ 90s and 2000s jams, while we dive into new queer tales of love and family, and an award-winning nursing cabaret takes over Rangatira.

Whatever you’re into we’ve got something for you this summer.

We’ll meet you at the bar.
