Play reading of ‘Establishment’ by Dr Emily Duncan
Date 2.00pm Saturday 20 April, 2024
Venue Hocken Library, 90 Anzac Ave, Dunedin
Tickets $20 per person

‘Establishment’ is a series of monologues and duologues that explore and celebrate a selection of 20th century food venues in Dunedin, and the people who dined and worked there. The project was funded by the Friends of the Hocken Collections Award 2023 and informed by Hocken Collections research.

The reading was greatly enjoyed by those who attended during the Dunedin Heritage Festival in October 2023 and we’ve been fielding requests for a repeat performance by those who missed out ever since.

All ticket proceeds will help to fund the next Friends of the Hocken Award. Thanks to our sponsor Graduate Women Otago for supporting this reading by Prospect Park Productions.
