The latest masterpiece from Auckland Theatre Company, already heralded as a New Zealand theatre classic.
A crippled English woman arrives from London to a savage land charged with civilising the natives, and instead, discovers the key to her own liberation. Ann Martin came to New Zealand in 1841, the young wife of New Zealand's first Chief Justice.
Intrepid, intelligent and possessing a wry sense of humour, she disregarded her personal disability, set about learning Te Reo, established a makeshift hospital for Maori on the beach at Judges Bay and dared to dream of all that was possible in this brave new world.
