The Basement Theatre presents a brand new two-woman, 15-character comedy exploring the fear and uncertainty that comes with change, no matter how inevitable.

Struggling with the decline of analogue business in a digital era and a lack of personal privacy, Gerald, the only watchmaker in town, is forced to re-evaluate his way of life - questioning his existence and friendships around him.

Directed by Sneaky Giraffe Productions Director Trish Phelan, TICKING TIME BOMB, stars recent Unitec Graduates Loren Mason and Caroline Muller.

The debut run of this new work will be presented in a short season at Auckland's Basement Theatre from September 18 – 22, 2012. Tickets are strictly limited and will be available from as of 22nd August.
