The Adults are Talking

Written by Jack McGee
Directed by George Cave


The year is 2002. Sasha is the president of the Victoria University of Wellington Students Association, and her executive is in absolute shambles. Aside from her Women’s officer, Amy, the executive consists entirely of men. Elected because of lack of competition, they’re all in one big, goon-squad, clique together. Trying to get any of them to do their job is like herding cats, and Sasha has found herself staying up to all hours, doing their work for them. Living on the other side of town, and working past the last bus, she’s nearly burnt through the executives taxi budget, and needs to motion for an increase. The only problem is, that will require a majority vote...
Will Sasha manage to corral the team, and be able to get home safely, or will monkey-brain testosterone prevail? And what is this mysterious second item on the agenda, that the boys have cooked up?
