Elisabeth Easther - Bird Words

Sunday 22nd October 2017

It’s been a year full of wings for Elisabeth Easther.

She wrote a play on the work of Nelson bird and environmental activist Perrine Moncrieff, and edited an anthology of New Zealand avian writing, Bird Words.

As well as writing, Easther also has the distinction of being long-running soap Shortland Street’s first murderer, in her three-year role as nurse Carla Crozier. She discusses birds, writing and life with Michelanne Forster.

Choose the five or ten talks you wish to attend at a discounted price. Offers can be used for a group booking. These special offers are only available from Theatre Royal Nelson.

Come early to order coffee - when the talking begins the machine is turned off!

Continue the conversation at 10am on both Tuesdays after the weekend sessions, with discussion groups at Nelson’s Elma Turner Library.
