In I’ll Tell You This for Nothing, Kate JasonSmith brings to life the dramatic and often humorous tale of her mother’s life in an acclaimed show about war, courage, danger and romance. Sent to the front lines on D-Day, Phyllis’s hospital followed the battles through Europe and finally to the liberation of Belsen. Amid this drama she found the love of her life, a Catholic, igniting a new and personal war with her mother, a Protestant.

Milord Goffredo is Jan Bolwell’s dynamic re-creation of her father Geoffrey’s WWII exploits – a Dunedin butcher who became ‘a bloody legend’ in a small northern Italian town, where he lived in a cave for two years after twice escaping from his German captors.

I’ll Tell You This for Nothing: ‘Superb, from the first minute to the last… a treat for theatre lovers.’ — Adelaide Advertiser

Milord Goffredo: ‘… a cracker of a New Zealand story beautifully evoked.’ — Mark Amery, Sunday Times
