Helmed by Resident Director Jessica Arthur (Wonnangatta) with an ensemble including Andrea Demetriades (Arms and the Man) and Anthony Taufa (How to Rule the World), this witty, highly-original and thought-provoking comedy takes a look at the complexity of women’s choices and the dangers of nostalgia through distinctly rose-coloured glasses.

This is a story of a love so strong it defies enemy lines. This is a story of a kingdom in triumph and a nation in chains. This is a story of betrayal.

Nadine Garner (Photograph 51) stars alongside Steve Mouzakis (Death and the Maiden) and Ngāti Toa actor Karl Richmond (Punk Rock) – making his MTC debut – in a play about an epic ideological battle over the nature of truth and the value of storytelling.

Audio described theatre. A homecoming. A picnic. A party. A leavetaking. It’s an uncertain time. Change is coming, you can sniff it in the air. A family returns to a home that’s seen better days – but it still has its orchard. Precious, beautiful, but…in the way.
