Katherine Mansfield's poetry transferred from pages to stage in In Her Own Words

Katherine Mansfield's poetic masterpieces are being brought to life in a way never heard before - on stage. 

Kiwi musicians are performing her works to a tune in the production of Mansfield - In Her Own Words. 

Twelve musos including Anna Coddington and Lawrence Arabia are combining Manfield's poetry with contemporary music.

The songs will be performed in chronological order to detail Mansfield's life story.

While production was delayed due to COVID-19, it is now being performed in Wellington on June 14 and Auckland on June 20.
