A premiere season of Sarah Delahunty's latest script from no less than 28 NZ theatremakers.

One of the largest ensemble works at BATS in its 30 year history, THIS LONG WINTER is set to tear apart some of Shakespeare's best-known works and set the record straight about what their heroines could achieve.

It's time to start rewriting these women's stories from a new perspective.

A poignant and remarkably funny new work from Delahunty, brought to life by a massive community of some of Wellington's most prominent artists.

With a co-op of this size to support, we need a bit of help! We are committed to making a phenomenal work and are putting in a lot of mahi, time, and personal investment. All donations will go towards backing the costs of production, allowing THIS LONG WINTER to be a sustainable and supportive project for all of its creatives.
