A solo play starring Helen Moulder
A modern, magical mystery with music from The Magic Flute.

“It’s imperative to have a good handbag when you’re on the way out.”

It is 2021 in Nelson and Gloria, aged 97, hasn’t long to live. Her son Craig is pushing her to move to a “retireville” but she wants to die in her own home.

On a whim, Gloria buys an extraordinary designer handbag. This purchase sets off a series of unusual events which transform Gloria’s remaining days and enable her to send a message to the future.

Written by Helen Moulder and Sue Rider (Meeting Karpovsky, Playing Miss Havisham); handbag design by Gillie Coxill; First production – Circa Theatre, Wellington (March 2014)
