“[Anahera] already stands tall as one of the best productions of 2017 in my book.” – REGIONAL NEWS

“There’s been many profound plays at Circa Theatre this year – deep performances that resonate powerfully, strong writing, clever staging – and Anahera is right up there, one of the best pieces of theatre I’ve seen and heard and experienced. A must-see event, a world-class piece of theatre.” – OFF THE TRACKS

A perfect life, a perfect secret. We’re all hiding something.

Liz and Peter Hunter have it all. A great marriage, successful careers, a beautiful house and two wonderful children. Until their son Harry goes missing. Distraught, they wait for news from the police, supported by social worker Anahera. But as the hours pass and everyone is pushed beyond their limits, Anahera must make a stand. But is it already too late? Can Anahera save anyone?

Anahera is a contemporary domestic thriller about a struggling kiwi family and the angel who stands up for them. Award-winning director Katie Wolfe (Waru, The Mooncake and the Kumara, The Women), who last appeared at Circa as Lady Windermere, returns to create the premiere production of this exciting new New Zealand work from the writer who co-wrote Turbine, Paua and The December Brother.

“It’s not often that a script is a real page turner, the unexpected twists and turns that unfold in Anahera are extraordinary. Emma has crafted a story that not only will be so familiar with our audience but also shocking. That’s what makes it such a great script.” – Director, Katie Wolfe

“A wonderfully compelling piece of theatre that we discussed for days after.” – Audience feedback, The Next Stage at ATC
