Long Ride Home

Written and Directed by Jack McGee

In this new Pōneke play, two estranged siblings attempt to reconnect and quickly discover how annoying they still find one another. As they push their way through the extraneous nonsense of family drama, they find themselves falling into a divide stretched exponentially wider by their years apart. As they bike to a mutual friends party, the brother and sister question what it means to be part of a family, and what they mean to each other.  Is their relationship worth saving, or do they even have a choice?

Award-winning playwright Jack Mcgee (2023 winner of Playmarket’s 
Playwrights b425  ) is back with his most recent work: Long Ride Home
