“Terrific entertainment … intellectually daring … darkly funny.” NZ Listener

The Bach plays out through the minefields of marital strife, sibling rivalry, national identity and one well-placed public convenience! We join Michael and Simon, two middle-aged brothers meeting for the first time in years at their family bach in the Coromandel. Michael is horrified to discover that the regional council has erected a public toilet right next door. Bruised by career disappointment, burned by relationship failure, battered by identity politics, the two brothers decide it's time to make a stand.
