The Revival is set from 1907 (the passing of the Tohunga Supression Act), through both World Wars, to 1970s New Zealand, where urban drift is at its peak and the new Pentecostal Charismatic Movement has taken a strong hold on a physically and spiritually displaced people.
Essentially a love story, this epic historic tale is laced with the horrors of war, grand gospel music and spiritual fervour including great miracles - and coupled with unbridled passion, love, lust and naked ambition.
A new play written and directed by Chris Molloy.
Part of the Matariki Festival.
