Defending the J.J.Mac

From Standing Room Only, 1:30 pm on 24 January 2016

Can fantasy help us to understand things we’d rather not think about at all? That’s the question behind new play Defending the J.J. Mac, which opens soon in Auckland. Director Leon Wadham says the play, written by Beanie-Maryse Ridler, is possibly about a butterfly tamer who lives in a tree house – maybe - and addresses questions of mental health and grief using magical realism and imagination.
