Over The Top, an ANZAC play written by Amanda Jackson, is a theatrical insight into the lives of nine young people who enlist and their families left behind. The stories of the six boys, Patrick, Jack, Edgar, Harry, Pura and Hoani and three girls Dora, Ruth and Madeleine enlisting as nurses, are based on real families residing in Napier in 1915. First produced by The Drama Workshop for the centenary of Gallipoli in 2015, the show was re-written to tour Hawkes Bay, Christchurch and Brisbane in 2017 and this remount of the 2017 show has been selected as the Plenary Performance at the IDIERI (International Drama in Education Research Institute) conference in Auckland in July 2018. The proceeds from performances at the Napier Little Theatre will go towards the costs for transporting cast, crew and set to Auckland.
