After their sell-out season of Prima Facie, Plumb Theatre and Auckland Live present the world premiere of Kathryn Burnett’s new comedy Nicola Cheeseman is Back.

Award-winning playwright and screenwriter Kathryn Burnett has created a bitingly funny and painfully relatable story of Nicola Cheeseman, a woman sick of trying to do it all.

Shortlisted for the Adam NZ Play Award 2023, Nicola Cheeseman is Back is a ride through the suburban to-do list of a 50-year-old woman as she navigates her husband moving out and her aging father moving in, all the while wondering exactly when she shelved her dreams of being a punk-rock goddess.

Nicola Cheeseman is falling apart in order to put herself together again.

Renowned for her award-winning roles on stage and screen, the iconic Jodie Rimmer takes on her first one-woman performance, directed by Paul Gittins.

Bring your mum, your nana, your daughter and your bestie because Nicola Cheeseman is Back is a story every woman will get, and every man should see.
