After a wildly successful New Zealand Fringe Festival Season, Walking Shadows have decided to take their fresh, new adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's When We Dead Awaken on the road, to a town near you! Our show was greatly received, but we've decided we're not quite done with this magical drama yet!

We need your help to bring our show to you! We have shows planned in Palmerston North, Masterton, Napier, Gisborne, Rotorua, Tauranga and Auckland, before heading back home to perform a season at BATS Theatre!

The reviews are in: "a real design and acting tour de force" - Theatreview. With a talented new actor, and the show in further rehearsals and development, we are determined to make this "consistently high quality: inventive, well-rehearsed, highly successful" rendition be the best it can be!

BUT we need your support ! We require help with petrol costs, marketing and accommodation, to take our show to these wonderful places!

Be part of this exciting creative challenge and help us secure the resources we need to bring "When We Dead Awaken" to life!
