“When the Roaring Lion calls my Henry, I’m dreaming hours down to minutes…”

In 1913 Annie entered the remote mountains of Kahurangi National Park to live a hidden life with her lover Henry Chaffey. There are no regrets, the years pass but love never falters. Together with the hills, they grow old. Forty years in raw exile, swallowed by the silence, enslaved by the fire.

This beautiful, touching true story is about Annie Chaffey’s love, loneliness, loss, and laughter.

DramaLab is offering you a peek inside Asbestos Cottage where Annie lives a life of solitude. Where Queen Vicky and Aunt Daisy come to the rescue. Where jam and scones are served in Victorian dresses and the gun is always within reach. Bang! Woodhen for dinner.

Martine Baanvinger plays Annie Chaffey and created this performance in collaboration with Mark Manson who composed the music and soundscape. An old story from a new perspective. Thanks to TDC Creative Communities for part sponsoring this performance.
