Strong language and description of violence. Themes including war and conflict. Contains gunshot effects.

2073. Tāmaki Makaurau. Civil war looms, resources are scarce and the Aotearoa United Defence Force stands as the country’s last hope of survival. Within the secure school gates, the graduating class is readying themselves to carve out their own future.

Sharp-tongued, darkly funny, and uniquely Aotearoa, For Country, propels us into the future, across places and decades to ask what we would do when faced with impossible decisions.

An incendiary new play by Joni Nelson (8 Reasonable Demands, Together Forever) For Country will be brought to life by ATC’s Youth Company. 

This is a Choose What You Pay ticketed show. Pick the ticket price from $10 – no questions asked.
