‘Over the Top’ by Amanda Jackson

Over the Top  was commissioned by HaBYT in 2015. Amanda carried out extensive research into stories of families who lived in Hawkes Bay whose sons and daughters enlisted in WW1.The play is based on those stories. First directed by Daniel Betty, the show played at the Napier City Council Chambers as well as a number of schools. Proceeds from the Napier public shows went to the Napier RSA. This production was shortlisted for a Ministry of Youth Development Anzac award in 2015.

‘Over the Top’ will have some developments with new insights and characters being added for the 2017 season by Amanda Jackson. Directed by Peter Cottrell and assisted by Champa Maciel, the play will incorporate physical theatre  to support the scene work.
