Six Bad Arthouse Plays grew out of the fact that all avant-garde theatre is actually really funny. It's usually unintentionally funny, which makes it considerably funnier. The funniest thing is, of course, is that the audience steadfastly maintains that nothing funny is going on. As soon as someone snorts, the game is up, and the audience spends the rest of the time trying very hard to maintain their po-faces and not collapse in giggles. Six Bad Arthouse Plays is based on the bold premise that intentionally bad avant-garde theatre is indistinguishable from any other kind of avant-garde theatre. In acknowledging that it is, in fact, bad, it allows the audience to do something they're not usually supposed to do at an avant-garde performance - laugh. Plus, it allows some of Hamilton's most talented writers and directors the chance to be as weird as their imaginations and a hilariously low budget will allow. Conceptualised and produced by Joshua Drummond, who is in semi-regular paid employment as a kind of village idiot at a number of major media organisations, (including the Waikato Times,) Six Bad Arthouse Plays is seven short plays that takes the proud tradition of avant-garde theatre, drags it out quietly behind the shed and shoots it repeatedly, in a manner that is simultaneously cruel, truthful, amusing and merciful.
