Things That Matter
A stirring portrayal of the state of Aotearoa's healthcare.
What does a healthy New Zealand look like? While working on the frontlines at Middlemore Hospital, Dr David Galler asked this in his best-selling memoir, Things That Matter: Stories of life & death.
Adapted for the stage, award-winning playwright Gary Henderson masterfully weaves Galler’s compassionate insight on the real and important stories of patients and the stark realities of the New Zealand healthcare system with stories of his life, and that of his Jewish Polish immigrant parents.
Inspirational and life-affirming, Things That Matter shines a light on the importance of humanity and the challenging decisions that doctors, families and society face.
