TRACEY: is a mother and Duane’s wife. 


RICK: is an accountant and drug dealer.


PHOEBE: is the owner/manager of "Fifi's." 

The ages ranges are broad but Rosie and Simon will be similar, as will Duane & Tracey and Henry & Penelope & Phoebe.  Rick will probably be a little bit older.

The characters will reflect the composition of the Whangarei community, in which this production of the play is set.


A comedy about sex, drugs, violence, revenge and true love. When Rosie (a student), Tracey (a mother) and Penelope (a credit card maxed-out socialite) secretly sign on for telephone sex training, they don't expect to see their partners turn up at ‘Fifi's', also a massage parlour.

While Simon is innocently delivering extra hot Thai takeaways, Duane has left the missus and wants a spot of "hot stuff". Henry (an undercover detective) is staking out Rick, Fifi's accountant, who is at the centre of an unravelling drug deal, code name Hot Stuff.


First produced in Christchurch by the Riccarton Players in 2000, after it won the Aoraki Festival Play Writing Award in 1996, this is a fast-moving comedy with many disguises and surprises.  

Due to COVID19 restrictions auditions are postponed. A new date will be posted once we are in level one or two. If you have any questions please contact Barbara Trimmer, Production Manager, on 021 393 322.
