Palliative Care

by Emily Duncan
Opening Night 03 October 2008
Director: Richard Huber

The Globe is delighted to have the opportunity to stage the premiere production of Emily Duncan's latest play, which is set in Central Otago in the mid 1990s. Ron Pederson is a World War II veteran who has lost his wife and is estranged from his adult daughter. He has an unconventional relationship with his nurse who despite his quarrelsome temperament strives to fulfil his needs and wants. However, gradually the threads of his life become rebound but he is left to question whether it is strong enough to hold in the face of tragedy.
