"When in doubt, sing loud."
From playwright Ro Bright and director Kitan Petkovski, the team behind the multi-award-winning Kiwi heartbreaker DAFFODILS, comes a new uplifting small-town family story performed with the help of a mass choir, composed by Pat Irwin (The B-52’s, SUSS).
The Greer household is a battlefield, overflowing with ant armies, wine gums and decades of hoarded fashion. Alison’s universe is centred around caring for her daughter Billie and mother Tup. Surrounded by chaos, Billie discovers a YouTube video that sets the trio on a mission to find a choir big enough to make Tup’s eyes pop.
Presented in collaboration with Voices New Zealand and locally sourced community singers, THE HALL brings audiences and choirs together in a ceremonious and frank story about caregiving and unconditional love.
