In 1907 she faked her death

Set in London Grace is inspired by the real life of writer and director Sophie Dingemans’s great-grandmother who faked her own death to run away to New Zealand with the man she loved. A drama of extraordinary deception and faith. What would you give up for love?
Ever since Sophie heard the story of her great-grandmother she has wanted to bring it to the stage. After developing it for two years as part of her MA in drama from the University of Auckland, the story of Grace is finally ready to be told.
