A solo play for small spaces
With Helen Moulder as Claudia
Directed by Sue Rider
With piano music played by Richard Mapp
Intimate comedy with music, song and an array of endearing characters.
Claudia lives an hour and five out of Christchurch. Her husband
is a farm accountant and her son Ben plays in a band. When an eccentric
Irish film-maker comes to New Zealand to make a film of Charles Dickens'
Great Expectations, Claudia is keen to audition for the role of Miss
Havisham as she sees it as a way out of her humdrum existence. As she
prepares for the role, Claudia finds her own life takes on the twists
and turns of a Dickens novel.
A work of unexpected visual richness, Playing Miss Havisham unfolds with mystery, music and surprise.
Music by Bach, Chopin, Schubert, Granados, Debussy & Gareth Farr
One hour 30 minutes, no interval
