Circa Theatre is excited to host a touch tour and audio described performance of of the classic New Zealand play Wednesday to Come by Renee on Sunday 7August at 4pm. 

As the 1930s Depression threatens to tear New Zealand’s working class apart, four generations of a single family must confront a personal crisis when the husband and father dies in a relief camp.

Erina Daniels directs a poignant new version of a national theatre classic. Wednesday to Come was described as ‘a major triumph’ by The Dominion when it premiered in 1984 and has been studied and performed across the country ever since. Jane Waddell, who originated the role of Iris and played Mary in 2005, will visit the play again – this time, as Granna. For the first time in its history, Wednesday to Come will be told through the lens of a Māori Pākehā whānau.

Underlined with a rich vein of earthy humour, Wednesday to Come is a powerful statement and passionate celebration of the contribution women have made to the evolution of Aotearoa
