A modern magical mystery with music from The Magic Flute.

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

It is 2021 in Nelson and Gloria, age 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).

“Helen Moulder as Gloria is a marvel… six characters, expert storytelling, opera singing and magic tricks, all performed by a cast of one." - Keeping up with NZ.
