Two expat British theatre makers are working with a Kiwi cast on a play that touches on some of the issues of the moment - isolation, exclusion - and the power of kindness. Godzonia is Georgie Oulton's first play - back in the UK she co-founded a company called Theatre Handmade. The director is Anna Ledwich who has been nominated for the prestigious Olivier theatre awards for two productions at Hampstead Theatre. Georgie and Anna decided to stay in New Zealand when it went into lockdown. Despite moving in similar circles in the UK, they met in Aotearoa before deciding to collaborate on Godzonia. It premieres on the 17th of February at Auckland's Q Theatre.
