“It’s imperative to have a good handbag when you’re on the way out!”
What would you think if your elderly mother suddenly spent $11,000 on a handbag?
It is 2021 and Gloria, aged ninety-seven, 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 not only meets with huge disapproval from her son but sets off a series of unusual events which transform Gloria’s remaining days and enable her to send a message to the future.

“Six characters, expert story telling, opera singing and magic tricks, all performed by a cast of one” -- Keeping Up With NZ
“Highly enjoyable entertainment” -- DominionPost

Gloria’s Handbag opened in Wellington at Circa Theatre in March last year. Since then Helen has been touring NZ , NSW & Queensland and is now touring in NZ again.
Once again Helen has collaborated with Sue Rider to write this new show. They will be remembered for their acclaimed work together on Meeting Karpovsky and Playing Miss Havisham, both of which have played at the Howick Little Theatre.

Only two performances. Seats strictly limited.
