Auckland's Basement Theatre has long been an important part of the city's theatre scene, not least for promoting New Zealand material and encouraging exciting young talent.
Now Executive Director Elise Sterback is about to step down after seven incredible years driving the Basement.
Seven years of highs and lows, including the last challenging year trying to maintain theatre during a pandemic.
Time to look back, maybe and to look forward too. Elise is about to be part of a unique recruitment process to pick a successor, along with a group called, not headhunters, but "hearthunters".
