A Conversation with Roger Hall and Peter Skellern
Sunday 24 February 2013,
Te Marae, Level 4
Playwright Roger Hall and composer Peter Skellern talk about their working relationship and new play about grandparenthood, You Can Always Hand Them Back. No grandparent will want to miss this (or Hall’s new play) and no would-be grandparent should.
You Can Always Hand Them Back is on at Circa Theatre, Wellington, from 23 February to 30 March 2013. It is the first collaboration between Hall, New Zealand's most successful playwright, and distinguished British musician and song-writer Peter Skellern (‘You’re a Lady’, ‘Love is The Sweetest Thing’).
