When life gets too hard for Ally and Petra they decide to go to bed, John and Yoko style – except not for ‘Peace’ – forever.
But something strange is going on in the house, and taking a stand proves harder than they thought. Kate Sheppard won’t stop bossing them around, Katherine Mansfield keeps making demands, and Heni Pore is going into labour. As things take a darker turn for Ally, will the women of her world come together or fall apart?
Shortlisted for the Adam NZ Play Award and led by acclaimed director Rachel Lenart (Constellations), this new work is a razor-sharp, poignant collision of historical heroines and present-day family politics. A play for anyone who knows that women are complex and courageous propagators of change, who can also watch a lot of Netflix.
