Theatre / Back to Square One?


Sunday 28 November
Ron Ball Studio | Christchurch Town Hall
16:00 – 17:00


The Rebel Alliance invites you into 95 year old Inga’s living room in Denmark as she reaches out through space and time to her grandson in New Zealand.

Inga has seen world wars, cold wars, civil wars. In real life and on TV. And when you’re close to 100 you know a thing or two about a thing or two.

Back to Square One? was originally designed to be performed in parks and driveways. It Features lots of chalk and a cameo by a Viking God, in the remarkable story of unremarkable lives and the (sometimes) misdirected urgency that drives us all. It’s theatre, but only just!

Written & Directed by Anders Falstie-Jensen
Dramaturgy by Simon O’Connor
Performed by Salesi Le’ota
