Finding Murdoch

by Margot McRae
Opening Night 26 April 2018
Director: Andrew McKenzie

The sending home of Otago All Black Keith Murdoch during the 1972 British Tour was a talking point around the country. The media was desperate for the story but Murdoch was desperate to stay silent. Based on actual events and people, this play is about the ex-Otago All Black who went into hiding and the efforts of a journalist to find him. The Globe presents a fascinating, highly charged piece of theatre that deals with one of the keys to “Kiwi Culture”. The wearing of the black jersey and what it means.
