Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Friday 9th-Saturday 17th March 2018
May was an athlete and an artist, ambitious, headstrong, brilliant, beautiful – and now she has disappeared. The Man who loved her does nothing but try to find her again, but as he tells and retells their story he starts to learn that ‘remembering is a game for two players’.
An original solo show featuring veteran performer Chris Green, Under is a poetic monologue about memory and the enduring power of love. “Under is a beautifully crafted, skilfully presented piece of theatre... sensitive, nuanced, delicate, often reaching up to the poetic.” -Tim Stevenson, Theatreview. Chris Green who performed Coaltown Blues in Nelson in 2015 and 2016 returns with this brilliant new solo play; giving 3 performances at The Ghost Light Theatre. Written by award-winning young playwright Cassandra Tse and shortlisted for Auckland Theatre Company's The Next Stage and commended for PANZ Long Play Award 2017 – the premiere season in Wellington delighted critics who responded with a full range of superlatives.
