HBAF 2021 - Hello Darkness: POSTPONED


Hello Darkness
By Peter Wells, Adapted by Victor Rodger

[Due to Covid 19 level restrictions we have had to reschedule this performance to Sunday 13th of March 2022. Any ticket holders will automatically have their tickets transferred to this new date and will receive communication about this soon.]

While receiving treatment for prostate cancer, writer Peter Wells - an intensely private person - reached out to the world via Facebook, where he examined his life as he also contemplated the end of it. Peter's posts were collated and published under the title Hello Darkness. Now, award-winning playwright Victor Rodger (Black Faggot) has adapted Hello Darkness as a one man show. Directed by Shane Bosher and featuring Roy Ward (Brokenwood Mysteries), Hello Darkness is both moving and amusing. In Peter’s words: “During that time, I received in return an explosion of aroha on that most cynical of mediums – the internet. There was advice, commentary, encouragement, accompaniment. I made something out of nothing, if near death experiences can be said to be nothing. I learnt a lot”. This is the story of facing the biggest challenge and meeting it with grace, intelligence, wit and resilience.

Winner - Victor Rodger, ONZM, Wellingtonian of the Year (Arts)
