"A great companion for the young and worried" - NZ Herald

"Comic genius" - Theatreview

"Dean’s wit is incredible" - Wellingtonista

"A master class in story-telling" - Manawatu Standard

Both exactly what it sounds like and much, much more, Uther Dean Reads 300 Haiku is a new hour of poetry, jokes and story-telling from one of the most exciting emerging writers and comedians in the country. Haiku, some are funny, some are sad, all of them are very, very human.

Poetry and post-modernism, verse and the universe, syllables and the slow decay of nature. Uther Dean Reads 300 Haiku is a tour-de-force of emotion, narrative and, most importantly, haiku. Can we ever make art that reflects what it's really like to be a person? Can the pain of creation ever justify the joy of presentation? Can Uther be trusted to count 5,100 syllables correctly?

After debuting to wild acclaim and packed houses in the NZ Fringe, My Accomplice (Everything is Surrounded by Water) are excited to bring this show to the rest of the country.
