Peninsula by Gary Henderson Directed by Annabel Hensley.

NZ playwright Gary Henderson’s Peninsula is set in Duvauchelle Bay, Banks Peninsula, in the summer of 1964 and captures the magic of childhood and rural NZ of the time. However, it transcends its specific time and location and examines themes, still topical today, of bullying, domestic violence, infidelity, small-town attitudes, gossip and prejudice.

While it shows the cracks in the blissful façade of childhood and explores the darker side of the NZ psyche, there is humour and nostalgia and a sense of hope. The play is unique, with five actors playing double roles as adults and children (and, in one case, a dog).
