Gordon Schwinn is an aspiring stage composer, currently making ends meet by churning out uninspired songs for the children's television programme "Mr Bungee’s Neighbourhood".

While complaining to his agent about his boring job and tyrannical boss, he suddenly collapses face-first into a bowl of pasta and is rushed to hospital. There, with his mother Mimi and boyfriend Roger at his side, he prepares to go under the knife, and begins to reassess his life, his relationships and his priorities, while those around him deal with the possibility of losing someone they love.

Presented here in its New Zealand premiere, A New Brain is a funny, life-affirming chamber musical with a beautiful score.

Music and Lyrics by William Finn
