Wellington storms Berlin

Wellington-raised actress and English teacher Amy Nye, 31, appears as ‘Louise’ in playwright Duncan Sarkies’ 1992 Love Puke at Berlin’s English Theatre through July 1. Also from Wellington, Fingal Pollock, 28, directs “eight characters who delve into the complications binding love and sex together in [Sarkies’] light-hearted yet poignant work”. Nye, who was most recently based in Madrid working for British theatre troupe Face2Face, says the play is: “Sexy, complete with saucy power games, providing the audience a modern interpretation into the intricacies of relationships.” Stage manager Sarah Silver, 28, and lighting assistant Geoff Pinfield, 3, round out the capital contingent.
