The Newlyweds: Double Date

  • The Random Stage at BATS Theatre 1 Kent Terrace Wellington New Zealand (map)
Double Date

The Newlyweds are a two-prov team made up of real-life married couple Eleanor Stankiewicz and Marcel Blanch-de Wilt. Each night at NZIF, they’re inviting another team to enjoy a double-date with them. Just like a double-date, ice will be broken, laughs will be had and by the end everyone will be best friends (hopefully.) 

The Newlyweds, new to NZIF, are interested in meeting new people and finding contrasting and complementing styles to their own. Marcel comes from stand-up while Eleanor comes from an acting background, both disciplines bringing dynamic characteristics to the party. The Newlyweds have performed in Sydney and Chicago, and are looking forward to making their NZ debut. They have studied at the home of longform improv, iO with the legendary Charna Halpern and performed as guests at the iconic Second City. 

Marcel’s comedy took up the whole stage with flare and cheeky mischief that had the audience barely able to catch their breath before the next laugh.
