Last Tapes Theatre Company
Valerie – Tuesday
“I'm starting to think about genetics, what's passed on. What isn't. I'm thinking of my grandmother, Valerie.”
Named the stand-out cabaret of the year by the NZ Herald, Valerie is an inter-generational, inter-disciplinary and interrupting piece of cabaret theatre that reaches into the guts of family mythologies. Music, genetics and story-telling combine to unravel family history, and to shine a light on the future. Valerie is a love letter from grandson to grandmother. Gig-theatre at its finest, it is a celebration of resilience, compassion and love.
“As close to a perfect piece of theatre as I could think of... so violently to my taste that I wanted to keep it close to me forever…” Pantograph Punch “A beacon and lesson for our future.” – Theatre Scenes
"Beautifully polished, striking, recommended…" NZ Herald
