A Mulled Whine text-01





The eccentric life behind one of New Zealand’s wildest imaginations.

Witch, jungle child, bewildered student, detective, librarian, shark: Margaret Mahy defied definition at every turn, embodying aspects of her characters in the many lives she lived. This delightful adaptation reveals the unconventional woman behind the stories that ignited our imaginations: Her witchy ways, bag lady tendencies, and never-ending search for adventure.

It’s a reminder to us all that you can grow old, but you don’t have to grow up.

‘Waddell is at her best when personifying Margaret as a cheeky, rebellious child… she narrates with mischievous energy.’ – Theatreview
