A Worldwide Premiere

Threads Of Life revisits the day of the Hawke's Bay Earthquake, 3rd February 1931, when all walks of life met, collided and were forever linked.
The results - drama , heroism, tragedy, pathos, even humour.
The audience will become part of that diverse bunch of characters who found themselves together on that fateful day ninety years ago.

Ophelia Thinks Harder
By Jean Betts & William Shakespeare
A Witty, Daring, Mistresspiece
“Woe is me,” wails Shakespeare’s Ophelia, well on her way to madness and untimely death.

To actually ponder her situation as a woman and therefore a mere pawn, perchance to challenge it. To think, in fact?
