Named the stand-out cabaret of the year by the New Zealand Herald, Valerie is theatre with a passionate heart.
The play explores nature versus nurture: Did Nature pull the trigger in Valerie’s case? Or, did Nature pull the trigger long ago, and we’re all just waiting to feel the bullet?
Valerie is an intergenerational, inter- disciplinary story that goes to the very heart of family mythologies. Music, genetics and storytelling merge to explore and unravel a family history of mental illness in a celebration of resilience, compassion and love.
Director Benjamin Henson (Twelfth Night, Fortune Theatre 2017) has skilfully crafted this work by former Dunedinite Robin Kelly into a remarkable and moving gig/theatre show.
Cherie Moore (Twelfth Night / Into the Woods) and Tom Broome perform this beautiful score and story.
The performance is followed by an opportunity to talk about this play.
Valerie is a production of Last Tapes Theatre Company
Valerie is a part of Arts Festival Dunedin 2018
