Three plays about exceptional New Zealanders.
STUART HOAR’S PLAYS bring three exceptional
New Zealanders to life, and engage us in the conflicts and
adversities they overcame to achieve great things —
✸ Ernest Rutherford, the Nelson-born scientist who split
✸ Archibald McIndoe, the plastic surgeon from Dunedin
who remade the burnt faces of World War II pilots and
helped heal their damaged psyches
✸ Beatrice Tinsley, the New Plymouth and Christchurch-
educated astronomer and cosmologist whose research
made a profound contribution to our understanding of
how galaxies grow and evolve.
