Trick of the Light is an award-winning theatre company from Wellington, New Zealand, founded by Hannah Smith and Ralph McCubbin Howell. We like to make theatre that is playful, inventive, thought-provoking, and that speaks to the here and now. Our previous shows have ranged from intelligent children’s theatre to biting political satire, but are unified by their attention to narrative, integrated visual design, and belief that theatre should resonate with the wider world.
