Hunt For The Wilderpeople

Town Hall Theatre

This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople will be preceded by a screening of the short Oscar & The Gdoifs, directed by Trinity & Eden Minehan, Co Clare.

Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family.

‘This charming comedy combines endearing characters with generous helpings of deadpan humour - and the result is quite wonderful.’ – Radio Times

‘It will make you honk like a goose on nitrous oxide.’ - Empire

‘An oddball and oddly affecting take on two misfits finding their metaphorical partner-in-crime match.’ – Rolling Stone
