Whanganui Venues and Events Presents- Bill Massey's Tourists
Bill Massey’s Tourists has left audiences weeping and laughing up and down the country. Bolwell plays her adolescent self, trying to get her grandfather Arthur to talk about his war. After much pestering, he succumbs. What follows is a gripping, painful and sometimes hilarious tale of a young Kiwi soldier from the Otago Mounted Rifles (one of Bill Massey’s Tourists) who with his mate Cyril, survives the terrible tragedy of Passchendaele. The play is enlivened with dance sequences set to amusing and original WW1 soldiers’ ditties and First World War poems.
