An Auckland Theatre Company production
Written and performed by: Ian Hughes
Songs and lyrics by: Don McGlashan
Directed by: Anna Marbrook

Epic tales, roguish folklore, spirited sea shanties and soulful ballads merge with exquisite animation to bring this rousing, feel-good production to life.

Written and performed by acclaimed New Zealand actor Ian Hughes (Bare, Shortland Street), Ship Songs weaves together three compelling seagoing adventures that span five centuries and four continents. Inspired by the remarkable true story of how his parents fell in love, Hughes effortlessly jumps between characters and countries to build three hilarious, and unpredictable tales.

Music is performed live by Don McGlashan, Chris O'Connor, and Dave Khan, whose impassioned songs add a further dimension of emotion and imagery to the stories. Alive with theatrical innovation, this romantic, funny and visually stunning production is a true celebration of love, courage, and adventure on the high seas.
