“…it does not lose its grasp on the fact that the play is about what it is to be a man in a modern world, and a commentary on the world itself…all with the backing of a great acoustic score…”
“…the laughs didn’t stop for nearly 90 minutes…the funniest masturbation scene I’ve ever seen…”

Carpe Vita present MAN BITS - Men! Words! Knitting! Therapy for the penis! Wow! An exposé of what it is to be a man in twenty-first century New Zealand.
In MAN BITS Four men “double-stitch” themselves up in the unusual situation of a men’s knitting group and discover more than they bargained for. Gender role reversal, monogamy, sexism, fatherhood, modern-day education, empowerment and disempowerment of men through inability to express what is most felt; friendship, relationships, careers and coming to terms with their man bits.
And if that wasn’t enough, “slip-stitched” into Man Bits is a play within a play called Penis, a biological “needle gauge” measuring what’s manly in this masculine theatrical “tapestry”.
Written and Directed by Rohan Mouldey (Blunt) and featuring multi-faceted comedian and actor Mark Scott (“Mark Scott Live – Now With A Beard!”), Breigh Fouhy (Young Cheryl from “Outrageous Fortune”), Damien Avery (D.C Colin “Goose” Gosling from Underbelly NZ), Steve Austin and Daniel Pujol, Man Bits is set to strip men bare!
Man Bits producer Grae Burton has experience of men getting together to discover more about themselves through participating in “Rites of Passage” men’s adventures with his stepson and says this play is clever, insightful, unexpected and refreshing. “The modern man just got even… moderner.”
There is a fair amount of “ribbing” along the way but Man Bits is a tightly wound “yarn” of sincere, tender and sensitive explorations of all things men.
*As with the Man Bits debut season there is a planned “Knitters In The Audience” event and knitting exhibition open to the public throughout the season.
