Migratore Worx presents Land Without
Intoxicating . like wine . she keeps getting better . all the time
It's 1937 - Lila, a young Dalmatian woman, leaves her homeland to travel to New Zealand to meet her husband, Miro - she's married him by 'proxy' and has only seen him in a photograph.
Land Without Sundays, the second in a trilogy of plays by Donna Banicevich Gera which trace the stories of Dalmatian immigrants in New Zealand, opens at the Musgrove Studio, Maidment Theatre on Wednesday 23 July.
Lila joins her husband in West Auckland where he is trying to establish a vineyard and produce wine in keeping with the traditions he has left behind in the Adriatic. To Lila, the whole place breathes defeat and the play focuses on her story as she struggles to overcome the odds and adjust to a new life in a new land.
Donna's earlier production, Anton's Women which was staged in February this year, met with critical acclaim and sold out shows.
Land Without Sundays is directed by Cathy Downes and features Alana Barber as Lila and Stephen Papps as Miro, with Liz Tierney as Rosa, Jeremy Elwood as Nick and Darien Takle as Mara.
Land Without Sundays is at the Musgrove Studio, Maidment Theatre, Auckland from 23 July to 2 August. Book by phoning 09 308 2383 or online at www.maidment.auckland.ac.nz.
