State HIghway 48

Hawke's Bay

State Highway 48 is touring the North Island. It tracks the life and times of an everyday family and their friends as they navigate the road of middle age.

The musical is touring Napier, Palmerston North, Whanganui, Rotorua, Putaruru, Taupo, New Plymouth and Tauranga from 5–29 October.

Changes in family, workplace, and friendships are made even more challenging as the black dog of depression takes the driver’s seat in Dave, the lead male’s life, taking everyone on a journey. It’s funny, dramatic, emotional and entertaining.

A reminder about what’s important; the dangers of not facing up to depression and a celebration of the everyday.
