Taranaki, 1940. After defeating his long-time rival Whata Grey, World Champion Axeman Ned Murphy is set to retire at the top of his game… that is until a young city-slicker named Billy turns up, claiming to be his son. Could this singing and dancing, sensitive, new-age show-off really be Ned’s boy? Ned doesn’t think so. So he tells the bastard to piss off, but Billy’s not going anywhere. He’s determined to win Ned’s acceptance… and, if that means becoming an even better woodchopper than his old man, so be it!
Three brilliant actors play 18 characters in this physical comedy, featuring horse riding, competitive woodchopping, a town dance, two world wars and tonnes of heart!
Written by Damon Andrews, co-creator and director of Wheeler’s Luck and Matt Chamberlain, creator of The Anthony Wilding Story.
