Albert Belz on Bookmarks

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:20 pm on 6 March 2019

Award-winning playwright Albert Belz is our guest on Bookmarks today. His latest play Astroman has recently played at the Court Theatre in Christchurch and is about to open in Auckland.

He tells us about how his experience of growing in Whakatane in the 80's has informed the play, about a kid who is a master of video arcade games like Donkey Kong and PacMan. And he shares with us his favourite songs, books, movies and TV shows.
