Theatre Royal Nelson


7:30PM Wednesday, 23 October, 2013 NZST


It is 1955. New Zealand's literary landscape is about to change forever. Janet Frame meets Frank Sargeson.
Behind his famous hedge, Frank has been having a difficult time with his writing, but the veggies are nearly ready and his old mate Harry is due any day.
Frank, the father of New Zealand literature, is about to see his idyllic world rupture when Janet arrives to stay - with her riddling speech and baffling behaviour - and not long after, Harry reappears. A beautifully funny, clever, and very moving literary love triangle.
'Don't try to change me - I won't be changed.' Janet Frame
'Sometimes I think I've made her up like one of those animated cartoon figures. I wonder if there's a way to rub her out.' Frank Sargeson
DURATION 120mins including interval
