Director Andrew Paterson

‘A perfectly pitched family drama’

Gus Lochburn is a celebrated pianist. But this weekend he is being moved into a care home.

His three grown children have the weekend to pack up his life, their childhood, and the memories of their mother into neat boxes. It’s been five minutes – they are already at each other’s throats.

Between fights and fugues comes magic, memory, and music.

Starring a celebrated cast of actor-musicians, performing soaring symphonies and jazz standards. and the Lochburns is brought to life by an exceptional band of award-winning theatremakers, including married duo Andrew Paterson and William Duignan, and designer Meg Rollandi (NZ National Curator, Prague Quadrennial 2023).

Regress back to childhood squabbles, pubescent spats, and fights over pizza slices, in one nostalgic night of loss and laughter.

This touching new play is a world premiere not soon forgotten.

Review – “We were all blown away by the play … utterly captivating.” – audience member, 2023 reading
