        Broken China

Broken China

Spend an afternoon in 1950s Remuera. Broken China is the story of one afternoon in two women's lives. Joyce is married, she is the picture of manicured domestic bliss. Joan is divorced with a child and is new to the neighbourhood. When the two meet, what begins as an afternoon like any other unravels around them as they find themselves in a crisis that will offer them both an escape from their stifling existence. This seemingly domestic piece invites the audience on a surreal and highly theatrical ride that takes us from vintage New Zealand suburbia to wild and fantastical landscapes of the imagination, all before the husbands get home at 5. This bold new work is a celebration of the moments that offer us escape, and the joy to be found in smashing teacups and ripping up the lino. the Stepford Wives meets thelma and Louise.

Devised by Sophie Roberts, Chelsie Preston Crayford And Willem Wassenaar
