Playing in repertoire with The Daylight Atheist

Queen of comedy and creator of the infamous Lyn of Tawa, Ginette McDonald teams up with her daughter Kate McGill as they take on the role of Joan, Tom Scott’s wickedly funny mother.

Tough and indomitable Joan will make you laugh and cry in equal measure. From humble beginnings in Ireland, to a new home in New Zealand with a brood of children, her optimism for a simple life never wavered.

A follow up to The Daylight Atheist, this poignant and funny play was a box office hit when it opened in Wellington last year.

A compassionate yet unflinching portrayal of an extraordinary everywoman whose delightful spirit will stay with you forever.

"Hilariously funny" - Stuff

Tom Scott’s Ma & Da season presented by Giltrap Audi

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience both sides of one story.

Award-winning satirical cartoonist Tom Scott, co-writer of Footrot Flats, wrote Joan about his Ma, an essential companion piece to The Daylight Atheist about his Da. See both plays in this unique season as The Daylight Atheist and Joan play in repertoire for the very first time.
