Elsie is a tempestuous young expat who returns to Wanaka from Berlin to look after her terminally ill brother, Sam. She runs into her former lover Frank who is now a glaciologist – a coolly logical and rational scientist. The ensuing complications push them to the torn edges of love, loss, risk.
The Southern Alps are as rugged and complex and as painfully beautiful as the relationships that form and melt under their gaze.
No Science To Goodbye premiered at the Southern Lakes’ Festival of Colour (2017), and has been performed at BATS in Wellington (2017) and Te Pou theatre, Auckland (2018). It was also recorded for RNZ as part of their Live On Stage Now initiative.
