As part of the Heritage Festival there are a number of presentations about the four year long journey of collecting, writing, recording and turning these stories into what has become a folk musical - crossing musical genres all as if you were sitting in the audience at the theatre. Don't miss this one off special show!

"Rachel Dawick isn't a historian but her new album The Boundary Riders is an invaluable body of work that traverses genres and captures the untold stories of Kiwi pioneer women. Released on Friday, September 19, 2014 - the date women were granted the right to vote in 1893 - the double album, which is accompanied by a booklet, is a collection of musical tales about the lives of women in New Zealand in the 1800s - "from prostitutes to missionary wives, magicians to fraudsters, goldminers to washerwomen" - NZ Herald 21st September 2014

"The elaborate Boundary Riders production – which includes a four-piece band and Steve Bretel as the narrator comes in two acts --, presents the lives of women who left Victorian England or Irish poverty and journeyed to far side of the planet. And in the course of the production – which has a beautiful and informative period-style full colour 50-page programme outlining the project and the history of the characters, and a double CD of the music – the audience gets to meet a Scottish washer woman with 14 children and no husband, tiny Biddy Goodwin a gold prospector, entertainers including Jennie Anderson who did magic tricks dressed as a Japanese woman, a prostitute and others."
