"It's a beast this life. But what a beautiful struggle"

An honest portrayal of the extreme power of love, The Wholehearted is a heart-warming devised theatre work that spans generations, genders and cultures. A mix of characters tenderly and humorously share with us their search for a wholehearted way of life, exploring what people do in the pursuit of love and how love changes us.

"Tackling the issues of our daily lives in a relatable, humouristic and thought-provoking manner both comedic and at times heart wrenching." NZ Herald

Six performers create a mix of characters which tenderly and humorously share with us their search for a wholehearted way of life. Journeys of heartbreak, grief and loss are charmingly and vigorously transformed by the ensemble to the courage, compassion and joy that exists within each of us.

A physically charged exploration of vulnerability and the Superhero-inspired moments of our lives.

“This piece of theatre will make your heart sing and your soul dance. It’s beautiful.”  Audience member

“A fabulous, honest glimpse into the human spirit – loved it!” Audience member

"The cast exemplify in every way just what it is to be 'wholehearted' " Theatreview Review
