Joy - "a feeling of great pleasure and happiness" - is what the world needs more of right now. But joy is a shifting creature - what constitutes joy? How do you define something so nebulous?
Our Joy is a collection of five new monologues by female and non-binary writers especially commissioned for TAHI 2022.
Writers Henrietta Bollinger, Mel Dodge, Stevie Greeks, Ren Lunicke, Indigo Paul and Elspeth Tilley explore what joy means to them through the highs and lows of menopause, childbirth, freedom, whānau, whakapapa, and acceptance.
Joy follows the success of TAHI's collection of monologues Batch and Whānau.
“The mark of a successful theatre production is that you’re left wanting more. I could have happily watched this group of talented actors telling their uniquely Kiwi stories with genuine pathos and humour well into the night.” – Tanya Piejus, Regional News (Whānau, 2021)
TAHI Festival wishes to sincerely thank Ren Lunicke for their support of Joy.
“A rich and profound experience.”
Directors: Kerryn Palmer & Sally Richards
