“This is a tour de force performance by Chris Green, who succeeds masterfully throughout the play”  - Theatreview

Born during the Depression and raised in a coal mining town north of Greymouth, a mature man celebrates and laments his childhood West Coast life. A charming and comical array of characters populate the child’s world - School life,  The Depression, The Second World War, Politics, Unions, Religion. All seen through the eyes of a child, relentlessly optimistic despite all the evidence of the world around him falling apart.
