NZ Life & Leisure - - Calendar -

Paul Bour­geois, chief wine­maker at Spy Val­ley Wines, en­joy­ing an idyl­lic read­ing spot 15 Septem­ber to 6 Oc­to­ber, The Court Theatre,

ahead of the Marl­bor­ough Book Fes­ti­val. Christchurch When mem­bers of an ir­re­press­ible fam­ily re­unite fol­low­ing the death of their mu­si­cally minded, toetap­ping mother, they dis­cover they have fewer than three days to de­liver the send- off she has re­quested. Mum has asked her chil­dren to per­form Faure’s

Re­quiem at her fu­neral. As the O’Reilly sib­lings fight over the so­los and the fur­ni­ture, they re­visit the good old songs of their shared child­hood and re­call what it means to be a fam­ily. Penned by Kiwi play­wright Ali­son Quigan, Mum’s Choir is a cheer­ing com­edy about quin­tes­sen­tial fam­ily life. courtthe­atre.org.nz
