Jan Bolwell’s ‘Bill Massey’s Tourists’ – 31 August – 30 September 2017.

A granddaughter tells her grandfather’s story.

Consummate performer Jan Bolwell plays her adolescent self, encouraging her grandfather Arthur to talk about the First World War. What follows is a gripping, painful and sometimes hilarious tale of a young Kiwi soldier from the Otago Mounted Rifles (one of Bill Massey’s tourists) and his survival from the tragedy of Passchendaele. It is a story that also features song and dance.

“This exceptional performer, Jan Bolwell, is blessed with an irrepressible joie-de-vivre that communicates itself instantly to the audience, so that her grandfather’s story is illuminating and memorable, but also surprisingly enjoyable.” - Terry McTavish

“A terrific script. A great performance. A tale well told. Knocked me for six.” - Raymond Hawthorne

Venue: Gloucester Room
