Waihi is thrilled to host Chris Green in July with a feature play by Cassandra Tse written especially for Chris to perform. In the second half, Chris continues the story in song. So it's rare chance to see Chris both in full actor mode, and then as a musician.   

May was an athlete and an artist, ambitious, headstrong, brilliant, beautiful – and now she has disappeared. The Man who loved her does nothing but try to find her again, but as he tells and retells their story he starts to learn that ‘remembering is a game for two players’.

“Under is a beautifully crafted, skilfully presented piece of theatre... sensitive, nuanced, delicate, often reaching up to the poetic.” Tim Stevenson, Theatreview


Under is a play about memory and the enduring power of love, written by award-winning young playwright Cassandra Tse specifically for Green to perform and shortlisted for Auckland Theatre Company's The Next Stage and commended for PANZ Long Play Award 2017.

The premiere season in Wellington delighted critics who responded with a full range of superlatives:

“I have never seen this sentiment echoed with such conviction, nor conveyed with such talent, in a theatrical work – or any work of art – before. Tse’s script is beyond beautiful. It is intelligent, fierce, and compassionate. Green is a natural performer who clearly shares a strong connection with the work. His micro-expressions and gestures are a joy to watch. Cain’s direction demonstrates a great understanding of the script – without fail, each decision he has made complements its ebbs and flows, its highs and lows, and its power.” Madelaine Empson – Regional News

“Tse’s words are silver threads on storm clouds as she stitches a delicate mix of light and dark of his journey. Green is charming and soft. He retells his memories fondly, and there’s something about the look in his eyes that makes you want everything to be okay for him..” Courtney Rose Brown – Art Murmurs
