On the 100 year anniversary of the 1918 influenza pandemic that plagued New Zealand, Thea 301 and director Kerryn Palmer present: Black November 1918.

Following the end of World War One and in the wake of celebrating our soldiers return - New Zealand was confronted with the most lethal disease outbreak we have ever seen, an estimated 9000 New Zealanders died in two months.

Black November 1918 has been influenced by family stories, verbatim accounts, the 2013 STAB production Pandemic at BATS Theatre, and detailed research by the company. The promenade-style devised performance delves into the homes and lives of ordinary Wellingtonians affected by the flu. It confronts the audience with the potential impact a modern day flu pandemic would have on 2018 New Zealand.

Black November 1918 will run from the 9th to the 17th of October at 7.30pm with no show on Sunday, at Victoria University of Wellington’s Studio 77. Audiences will meet at the box office at 83 Fairlie Tce and move through multiple spaces. Please advise if you need wheelchair access.
