Poster for Shop 'til you drop, 2013

Palmerston North's Centrepoint Theatre has a track record of developing original plays that are later performed nationally. Shop 'til you drop, a comedy about six New Zealanders on a weekend in Melbourne, was written by Ross Gumbley and Centrepoint's then artistic director Alison Quigan, and premiered there in 1999. This is the poster for an updated revival of the play, which was performed at Centrepoint in 2013.
