Bill Massey's Tourists - Te Anau
Consummate performer Jan Bolwell plays her adolescent self, encouraging her grandfather Arthur to talk about the First World War. What follows is a gripping, painful and sometimes hilarious tale of a young Kiwi soldier from the Otago Mounted Rifles (one of Bill Massey’s tourists) and his survival from the tragedy of Passchendaele. It is a story that also features song and dance.
Presented by Arts on Tour NZ.
“A terrific script. A great performance. A tale well told. Knocked me for six.” – Raymond Hawthorne
