The explosion of grief that followed the death of her husband, is channelled into Cian Parker's new play, All I See.

It's going to premiere at the 2021 Kia Mau Festival at Wellington's Circa Theatre, June 4-12. 

The play is about two recently bereaved people who help each other through their grief.   While it's not her story, Cian writes from experience of loss.

It's a busy time for the writer and performer.  An earlier play of hers, Sorry For Your Loss, is about to be restaged for Auckland Live's Matariki season at the Herald Theatre next month.

It premieres at Wellington's Circa Theatre from the 4th of June as part of the 2021 Kia Mau Festival. Meanwhile, Sorry For Your Loss is part of Auckland Live's Matariki season at the Herald Theatre, and starts on June 19th.
