‘’The thing Jonathan liked to say about grapes is, they have different personalities. Each one is shaped and moulded by the seasons which grew them."
"08 was the best year yet. The last harvest my Jonathon and Joe finished together. It's never been the same since."
Matriarch Nana deVine swoons over the delicious memories of her life with Grandpa deVine on their sunny seaside vineyard in Te Rā Bay. On the back of a family emergency, deVine sisters Bobby and Blair return to the once thriving family vineyard and attempt to hold the whānau together as a life-changing decision awaits.
Come dabble in the dysfunction of the deVine family and join us at Basement Theatre for our special fundraiser week 7-11 Feb before we head off on our Northland Tour.
After each performance the RECollective team will be sticking around to share kōrero with the audience about individual experiences of mental distress and why we felt deVine needed to be made. We hope you'll join us.
RECollective Theatre Company makes 'Theatre of Courage' with a 10 year vision to create yearly tours to share with rural communities in the hope of supporting and normalising discussions around mental distress and how it can affect us all in everyday life. Aotearoa's crippling suicide rates are particularly prevalent in Northland communities and our mission is to make whānau feel that they are seen, heard, and not alone in trying to cope when times get tough.
