‘I’m starting to think about genetics, what’s passed on. What isn’t. I’m thinking of my grandmother, Valerie.’

Named stand-out cabaret of the year by the NZ Herald, Valerie is an inter-generational, interdisciplinary and interrupting piece of theatre reaching into the guts of family mythologies. Music, genetics, and storytelling combine to unravel one family’s history. A love letter from grandson to grandmother, this celebration of resilience is gig-theatre at its finest.

Presented by Last Tapes Theatre Company. Created by Robin Kelly, Cherie Moore, and Tom Broome. Directed by Benjamin Henson.
