“ I wrote the play specifically for the space. I like a challenge!” says writer/director Sarah Delahunty, who in 2012 won the National Playwriting for the Young Competition for the second time.

Two the young cast have already some international acting experience. Both Neenah Dekkers- Reihana and Robbie Nicol were selected to perform onstage at the Globe Theatre in London as part of the SGCNZ Young Shakespeare Company.
