Named the stand-out cabaret of the year by the New Zealand Herald, Valerie is gig-theatre at its finest.

“Nature versus nurture. Did Nurture pull the trigger in my grandfather’s case? In Valerie’s case? Or did Nature pull the trigger long ago, and we’re all just waiting to feel the bullet?”

An inter-generational, interdisciplinary story reaching into the guts of family mythologies. Using music, genetics and storytelling, Valerie unravels a family history of mental illness and shines a light on the future.

See a show, stay for the party. This electric pop-up on Wellington’s waterfront is the place to be and be seen for three fun-filled Festival weeks. And when the curtain falls each night, Wellington’s newest hot spot throws open its doors with free entry for everyone. Because the show ain’t over until the Festival Club closes.
