A recipe of songs, colourful characters, tragedy, and comedy

A recipe of songs, colourful characters, tragedy, and comedy

FORGOTTEN WORLD HIGHWAY RECORDS and THE DARK ROOM proudly present THE JOURNEY OF THE BOUNDARY RIDERS.

The adventurous and magical journey of one songwriter and Victorian Kiwi women – the prostitute, the fraudster, the magician, the washerwoman, the gold miner, and the missionary wife.

At the end of 2010, Rachel Dawick (finalist, 2015 Tui Award for Best NZ Folk Album) embarked on a four-year adventure to discover the stories of New Zealand women in the 1800s and turn them into songs. This new one-woman show – a world premiere – takes the audience on a musical journey, capturing the fascinating stories of our past through the songwriter’s own personal journey and into the magical world of these six, very different women. Experience these stories like you’ve never heard them before – for one night only!

“Dawick isn’t a historian but her new album The Boundary Riders is an invaluable body of work that traverses genres and captures the untold stories of Kiwi pioneer women...” – NZ Herald

Saturday 18 April, 8pm

$20 adult / $12 concession
