Sam Neill, Rhys Darby, Keisha Castle-Hughes and Lucy Lawless are amongst the star-studded cast of New Zealand actors performing Toa Fraser's iconic play Bare to raise funds for the Red Cross 2011 Earthquake Appeal.

100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Appeal.

Bare is a powerful theatrical performance about Kiwi identity and change. Originally performed by just two actors, now with a full cast of 17, this amazing one-off show will feature a top-calibre line up, which has come together in support of Christchurch:

- Stacey Morrison
- Mia Blake
- Michael Hurst
- Morgana O'Reilly
- Ian Hughes
- Sara Wiseman
- Antony Starr
- Ian Mune
- David Fane
- Curtis Vowell
- Bronwyn Turei 
- Kirk Torrance 
- Lucy Lawless
- Rhys Darby
- Annie Whittle 
- Keisha Castle-Hughes
- Sam Neill
- Don McGlashan and the Jubilation Choir

Armed with the voice of the street, these actors riff on body image, movies, takeaways, tagging and English literature, swapping effortlessly between seventeen seemingly random characters, from brazen gym hottie to philosophical parking warden, from waffling academic to multiplex popcorn pusher. Listen to our people talk. Join them in coming together, at this crucial moment in New Zealand's history.

The play will end with an inspirational performance of Bathe in the River by Kiwi music legend Don McGlashan accompanied by the 30-strong Jubilation Choir which includes Jackie Clarke, Rick Bryant and Amanda Billing.
