Three times Jack Lovelock ran against Tommy Morehu. Three times Jack Lovelock lost.

Then there was their fourth race. Two thousand kilometers apart they set out on the run of their lives. At the finish, one became his country’s Immortal. The other was written out of history. This is the story of the other: Tom Morehu; b. somewhere in the South Island, 1910; d. Spain, 1936.

We celebrate 2008 Olympic Year with the World Premiere of a thrilling new play that will have you urging on our Kiwi boys from the grandstand and hoping that the best man wins. Written by one of New Zealand’s most accomplished writers (The Hollow Men; Baghdad, Baby), it is brought to life by one of New Zealand’s most exciting directors (The Cape; King and Country; Niu Sila).

A New Zealand Premiere.
