Welcome to 16th Ave Theatre

Friday 28th May 2021
Theatre and Bar opens at 6.30pm
Play reading to begin at 7pm

Have you ever wondered why a playwright has written a play the way that he has, or thought about where he gets his ideas and how he develops his characters?

Come along to join us as we read through the play “Family Trust” and get to ask Richard all these questions.
Richard Prevett, director, actor, and writer comes from Matamata and we are thrilled that he has agreed to come over the hill and spend an evening at 16th Ave Theatre and share his experience with us.

The story revolves around Malcolm, a farmer, and a widower of three years. He has recently returned from an overseas holiday. It is whilst on a cruise ship that he meets and falls in love with a Ukrainian woman. Together they happily return to New Zealand, a new beginning for both Malcolm and his now fiancée Alina.
However, Malcolm’s two adult children, Jason (a lawyer) and Susan (a schoolteacher, mother of two and married to Brian) have other ideas. Neither Jason nor Susan have any interest in running the farm. Notwithstanding, Jason and Susan are aware that the farm is a sizable asset that one day they expect to benefit from. Misconceptions, bias, and hostility breaks out. But will this family draw strength and unite after unexpected events take priority at the farm?
