December, 1998. Dunedin. The bottom of New Zealand, the bottom of the world. High summer in a town where there isn’t a lot to do.  Anya Tate-Manning & Isobel MacKinnon’s comedy about death, revolution, unfulfilled love, and a possum was the winner of the Summerhall award at Melbourne Fringe 2018.  A true story about heart-breaking grief and enduring friendship, featuring a soundtrack ranging from The Verlaines to the Backstreet Boys, and the words of poets Tuwhare, Baxter and Maniapoto.
