"When in doubt, sing loud."
From playwright Ro Bright and director Kitan Petkovski, the team behind the multi-award-winning Kiwi heartbreaker Daffodils, comes a new uplifting small-town family story performed with the help of a mass choir, with songs composed by Pat Irwin (The B-52s, SUSS).
The Greer household is a battlefield, overflowing with ant armies, wine gums and decades of hoarded fashion. Alison's universe is centred around caring for her daughter Billie and mother Tup. Surrounded by chaos Billie discovers a YouTube video that sets the trio on a mission to find a choir big enough to make Tup's eyes pop.
Premiering at the Festival of Colour in collaboration with Voices Aotearoa and local singers, The Hall brings audiences and choirs together in a ceremonious and frank story about unconditional love.
