Things That Matter
by Gary Henderson, adapted from the memoir by Dr David Galler

For more than 30 years, Dr David Galler has worked on the frontlines of New Zealand’s health system at Middlemore Hospital and in its highest reaches as an advisor to the Ministry of Health. His 2017 memoir, Things That Matter: Stories of life & death, shines a powerful light on the extraordinary patients he met and the struggles our society faces in caring for them.

Now, New Zealand playwright Gary Henderson brings Galler’s best-seller to the stage, expertly weaving stories of his life and of his Jewish Polish immigrant parents, who survived the Holocaust. With dramatised incidents to immerse us in an insider’s realities of intensive care, Things That Matter explores the most challenging decisions that doctors, families and society face.

At a time when matters of life and death consume the headlines and our thoughts, Auckland Theatre Company is proud to present the world premiere of the compassionate, illuminating Things That Matter.

Things That Matter was commissioned and developed by ATC.

Directed by Anapela Polata'ivao.
