Blood runs through the streets and the Governor's severed head is nailed to the gates of the city. A young servant girl must make a choice: save her own skin or sacrifice everything to rescue an abandoned child.
A time of terror, followed by a time of peace. Order has been restored and the Governor's Wife returns to reclaim the son she left behind. Now the choice is the judge's: who is the real mother of the forgotten child?
A play by Bertolt Brecht, translated by Frank McGuinness.
Directed by Deborah Rea.
Presented by Wellington Young Actors, the capital's youngest theatre company, by special arrangement with NZ Play Bureau and Samuel French.
