‘Six characters, expert storytelling, opera singing and magic tricks; all performed by a cast of one.’ – Keeping up with NZ

Wanganui Music Society brings you Willow Production’s ‘Gloria’s Handbag’

It is 2021 in Nelson and Gloria, aged 97, hasn’t long to live. Her son Craig is pushing her to move to a ‘retireville’ but she wants to die in her own home. On a whim, Gloria buys an extraordinary designer handbag. This purchase sets off a series of unusual events which transform Gloria’s remaining days and enable her to send a message to the future.

Written by Helen Moulder and Sue Rider (Meeting Karpovsky in Wanganui 28th May 2015, Playing Miss Havisham); piano music recorded by Bruce Greenfield; soundscape by Gareth Farr; handbag design by Gillie Coxill; first production – Circa Theatre, Wellington (March 2014)
