One Hill of a Fight- Return Season!

Local playwright Michael Switzer’s hit play ‘One Hill of a Fight’ is back for a Return Season!
The first season of this play at The Meteor in May 2017 was a sold-out success and received audience and critical acclaim. This instant classic tells an intriguing local story as it examines the great political battle in the 1930’s - between the Hamilton borough engineer Rupert Worley, HCC and ratepayers- over removing the hill that once covered Garden Place. This show was such a sold-out success for it’s opening season, that we had to bring it back by popular demand!
Some audience and review quotes from the first season:
‘a great story and some interesting history that I feel embarrassed to have waited 50 + years to have found out!… our guests really enjoyed it and were buzzing about after in terms of both content and performance’
‘One Hill of a Fight is a well-researched and highly relate-able play melded with strong performances. Anyone with an interest in local or national history will find a wealth of material here and the story itself is strong enough to stand on its own merits”
