In this celebratory tribute to artist Rita Angus and composer Douglas Lilburn, Jennifer Ward-Lealand and Michael Houstoun join together to present the words, music and images of these two iconic historical figures.

Playwright Dave Armstrong has skilfully assembled excerpts from Angus's letters to create a compelling dialogue, which is reciprocated through the interspersion of Lilburn’s music. The result is an intimate look at the poignant relationship between two nationally cherished artists as well as a glimpse of the rich cultural life of 1940s New Zealand.

Rita & Douglas, performed by two Festival favourites, combines stunning theatre, music and art to tell an unusual love story that lies at the heart of our cultural history.

“...snappy and entertaining... remarkably deep and revealing... 9 stars out of ten.” - Theatreview
