Scarlet & Gold
Written by Lorae Parry

The dramatic Waihi strike of 1912 was the first union action in New Zealand where women played an active and innovative part. Scarlet & Gold follows the changing fortunes of women from the three sectors that clashed so dramatically in Waihi: the striking miners; the mine owners and shareholders; and the workers who crossed the line. The Waihi strike changed our country’s industrial law, and out of the ashes of the long and bitter strike the New Zealand Labour Party was born.

Bill Parry, along with Peter Fraser and Bob Semple were elected to Parliament 1916, and later, as Labour Party Minister, Parry was instrumental in implementing one of the first social security systems in the world.

Circa Play Readings

As part of the 2016 Circa Season we will be presenting a number of Play Readings throughout the year. In our 40th birthday year we are delighted to celebrate the 100+ New Zealand playwrights whose work has captivated our audiences over the years.

A Play Reading will include actors on stage reading the play in full, directed and rehearsed in advance of the public reading.
