Jan Bolwell has toured this play the length and breadth of New Zealand over the past four years. She has left audiences laughing and weeping as she depicts herself as an adolescent trying to get her reluctant grandfather to talk about his WW1 experiences.

What follows is a gripping, painful and sometimes hilarious tale of a young Kiwi soldier from the Otago Mounted Rifles (one of Bill Massey’s tourists) and his survival from the tragedy of Passchendaele. It is a story that also features song and dance and images of Kiwis at war.

"A terrific script. A great performance. A tale well told. Knocked me for six!" - Raymond Hawthorne, Auckland veteran theatre director.

Jan Bolwell: Writer/performer
Kerryn Palmer: Director
Ralph Mcallister: Dramaturg
Nicole Cosgrove: Set & Costume Design
