The New Zealand Post Season of The Wife Who Spoke Japanese In Her Sleep (Auckland Festival 2009)

Starring Alison Quigan - Peta Rutter - Katlyn Wong

There’s more to Japan than Sushi and Sumo.

Honey Tarbox is an ordinary Kiwi housewife with quarteracre dreams, until one night when she inexplicably begins speaking Japanese in her sleep. Immediately the wheels are set in motion for Honey’s extraordinary transformation from suburban housewife into sleep-talking media megastar.

The Wife Who Spoke Japanese In Her Sleep reveals the magic lurking behind the manicured gardens of suburbia.

Adapted from Vivienne Plumb’s Hubert Church Award-winning short story.

“Quirky, provocative, consciously flirting with the surreal and the bizarre.” - Metro

“This author has a wondrous, fresh approach: her style is always direct and simple so you utterly believe.” - Sunday-Star Times

Presented in association with Auckland Festival 2009.
