You have 60 minutes to come up with a vision to save the world, and the timer’s ticking – what will you do? Bursting with wit, energy and tenacity, ‘Like a River’ is an unpredictable and rule-breaking countdown to a better, different world. In a lively conversation with each other and the audience, our ensemble of five oddball individuals wrestle with the complexities of what it means to be a hero.



Our 2019 emerging artists’ production ‘Like a River,’ has been written by the brilliantly funny and acclaimed playwright Jo Randerson. Jo’s award-winning shows have played in New Zealand and worldwide, and her writing has twice been shortlisted for the International Institute of Modern Letters Prize.
