Four women. Four generations. One whānau.


‘Hard times back there – hard times here. Nothing’s changed… nothing’s changed…’

As the 1930s Depression threatens to tear New Zealand’s working class apart, four generations of a single family must confront a personal crisis when the husband and father dies in a relief camp.

Erina Daniels directs a poignant retelling of Renée’s seminal play that the Dominion called ‘a major triumph’ when it premiered in 1984. Jane Waddell, who originated the role of Iris and played Mary in 2005, will visit Wednesday To Come again – this time, as Granna, alongside Neenah Dekkers-Reihana as Iris and Grace Hoete as Mary.

Underlined with a rich vein of earthy humour, Wednesday To Come is a powerful statement and passionate celebration of the contribution women have made to the evolution of Aotearoa.

‘Wednesday to Come joins the front rank of New Zealand plays and establishes Renée as one of our finest playwrights’ — Katherine Baxter and Philip Tremewan, NZ Times
