Saturday 21 March to Saturday 4 April, 2020



Set on the Banks Peninsula, South Island, in the 1960’s, this is a warmhearted and open-eyed snapshot of life in New Zealand’s 20th century rural communities.

An insightful glimpse into the concerns, dreams and joys of childhood.

The story centres around Michael Hope, a young boy,  who lives on a volcano. While geological rumblings may remain deep underground, unrest in the adult world threatens to erupt into his life, changing everything.

Rich with Kiwi nostalgia, and performed by 5 talented actors who play two characters each - one young and one older.
