Keeping creative during a lockdown
From the safety of their bubbles, members of The PumpHouse Theatre whānau – from beginner actors, to professional actors, to non-actors and even talented pets – have “come together” to present you with their take on some well-known monologues!
Each person was given part of the monologue to work on, and had creative freedom to do whatever they liked with it.
