A solo play starring Helen Moulder
A modern, magical mystery with music from The Magic Flute.

“It’s imperative to have a good handbag when you’re on the way out.”

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, Playing Miss Havisham); handbag design by Gillie Coxill; First production – Circa Theatre, Wellington (March 2014)

"Highly enjoyable entertainment" Dominion Post
"There are so many goodies in Gloria’s Handbag, it's well worth rummaging through" Theatreview
“Helen Moulder as Gloria is a marvel…six characters, expert storytelling, opera singing and magic tricks, all performed by a cast of one" Keeping up with NZ.
