Shall We Gather at the River

Synopsis:
Shall We Gather at the River, by one of New Zealands iconic playwrights, Renee: a story about the bonds that hold families together, even when the core family as in this case consists of two step-sisters, RUSA and Grace, who have been estranged for 20 years. they had shared a father and mother and a childhood filled with music but had gone their separate ways after a crisis that led one to overseas travel and a hostage situation and the other to more localised but equally isolating travel. they come together on this day, their shared birthday and finally discover that love, in all its forms, really is the strongest bond of all.
