|Shall We Gather at the River|
Opening Night 08 October 2010
|Director: Louise Petherbridge|
|The Globe Theatre is immensely proud that Renee, one of New Zealand's iconic playwrights, has chosen this theatre to stage the world premiere of her new play, Shall We Gather at the River.|
Renee, who spent several years at the Globe as artistic director in the 1980s, has also chosen to have her new play directed by another of Dunedin's and New Zealand's theatrical icons, Louise Petherbridge.
Shall We Gather at the River is a story about the bonds that hold families together, even when the core family consists of two step-sisters, Rusa and Grace, who have been estranged for 20 years. They had shared a father and mother and a childhood filled with music but had gone their seperate ways after a crisis that led one overseas and into a hostage situation and the other to more localised but equally isloating travel. They come together on this day, their shared birthday, and finally discover that love in all its forms really is the strongest bond of all.
