Two charming old ladies make it their mission to provide tea and accommodation to socially and religiously “acceptable” lodgers. When they pass on, their brother, who thinks they are victims of yellow fever, buries them in the cellar. He thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt so never questions their actions. Then there’s a somewhat unusual nephew, to put it mildly, and another one who is really, actually completely normal – not easy in this household!

Dolphin Theatre began as The Onehunga Repertory Players in 1961. Mrs Veronica Dow, an actress and producer who had been active in English repertory theatre, was invited by the Mayor and Mayoress, Mr and Mrs Leo Manning, to form a local drama group.
