Two of this country’s leading artists, Jennifer Ward-Lealand and Michael Houstoun, join together to tell the unusual love story of the brief but passionate affair between two of New Zealand’s cultural icons. Set in the early 1940s, recently divorced painter Rita Angus and young composer Douglas Lilburn’s relationship is brought alive through Angus’s images, her letters to Lilburn and his music for piano, performed live by Houstoun. Living in virtual poverty and struggling with health issues, Rita Angus went on to single-mindedly produce a stunning body of work. The letters of Rita Angus to Douglas Lilburn have been adapted for the stage by Dave Armstrong.
