2018 Fortune Theatre Season

Here it is the 2018 Fortune Season!

This is a season of storytelling and of collaboration. Stories from near and far, and from all walks of life. Stories to make you laugh, some to make you think, and even a few that will make you shed a tear. Here at Fortune we believe that everybody has a story, and we should have a story for everybody. In 2018, we are telling them all; from mad-cap British farce to new works that reflect our New Zealand – and all sorts in between!

We’re thrilled to be presenting three new works by Dunedin writers in our Family Season, a festival of women’s work, and the return of the Fortune Company in the purpose-built pop up Fortune Playhouse – all as we celebrate 40 years in our Stuart Street location by exploring new ways to experience our heritage building.

So go on, click through the pages below and find some stories for you.

What Else is On

Hudson & Halls Live!

Move over My Kitchen Rules, this is New Zealand’s original kitchen reality drama! Hudson and Halls Live! is serving up lashings of laughter and hearty good fun.



Improsaurus is Dunedin’s own critically acclaimed improvised comedy troupe. Beginning in 2009 as a group of Otago University students looking for a creative outlet, Improsaurus has since grown and developed, gaining a great reputation within the Dunedin community. Improsaurus’ speciality is its own original brand of long form improv, and fresh, innovative formats.


Fortune Theatre is a registered charity operating thanks to the generous support of national and local funding agencies, community trusts and by our patrons, corporate supporters and private donors.
