Coffee With Eelco is a light-hearted theatrical biography of the life of Eelco Boswijk, the patron of WOW World of Wearable Arts and a man who revolutionised cafe and arts lifestyle in New Zealand when he opened his little cafe, Chez Eelco, in Nelson in 1951. For forty years his influence fostered and elevated artists and creatives all over the region to international status while The Chez became the starting point for New Zealand burgeoning cafe lifestyle and culture.

Coffee With Eelco was originally created by Grae Burton and Tim Coughlin for The Nelson Theatre Trust and has since been revised and will be performed by Grae Burton for its première Auckland season.

"Clever non-naturalism well suited to portray the life of such a bohemian and experimental man... a timely tribute." - Theatre reviewer Jo Say.
