For years the O’Reilly household was alive with music - Mum took to the keys, Uncle Noel whipped out his spoons and Aunty Nola shook the rafters with her vibrato. These sing-alongs would make your heart soar and your jaw ache.

But now the piano keys have fallen silent. Mum has sung her last song, and the kids – now middle aged with children of their own – return to a house haunted with the half-remembered melodies of their childhood.

Mum hasn’t left quietly though. Her final request is an almost impossible task: for her kids to sing Faure’s Requiem at her funeral. As they fight over the solos – and mum’s furniture – the O’Reillys relive their childhood, the good old songs they used to sing and what it means to be a family.

Written by Alison Quigan, the writer of Flagons and Foxtrots and Shop Till You Drop, Mum’s Choir is a heartwarming comedy about a gloriously typical New Zealand family.

With songs such as Good Ship Lollipop, That’s Amore, Hine E Hine, and Accentuate the Positive, The Court Theatre celebrates New Zealand Theatre Month by bringing back this loved classic that took Aotearoa by storm after its debut in 2005.
