For nearly two decades, Massive Theatre has collaborated on plays with British actor Lennie James. It may seem an odd pairing – a little company in New Zealand teaming up with James, of Walking Dead and Line of Duty fame – but their latest collaboration, Half of the Sky, shows their relationship is one we're lucky to have.

James, in collaboration with the cast, has written a script that feels distinctly unique to New Zealand, our culture and our sensibilities. Half of our Sky revolves around three sisters, born years apart but their birthdays all coincide on the same week.
