A New Zealand Premiere
Finalist for the 2016 Adam Play Award.

Waihi 1912: another accident in the Martha Gold Mine and the miners’ wives say enough! Improve conditions or strike!

They’re the ones trying to scrape together food for the table and clothes for the kids.

As the strike gains momentum the women gain confidence – in their own strength, in their ability to instigate change. Major change – not just here, but throughout the country.

And woven into all this is a love story. What if your man crosses the picket line for desperately needed cash? Will you still love him? And what if you’re married to a shareholder, and rely on the dividends to live on?

What if…?

Inspired by a true tale. Told with song and dance, delight and passion.

Writer: Lorae Parry
Producer: Kate Jason Smith
Director/Choreographer: Jan Bolwell
