I want to tell you about my granddad. He was a great man. No. Not great, nah nah.

What are the odds of living an extraordinary life?

This is the story of one boy’s granddad who won a fortune betting on the 1966 World Cup and, when diagnosed with cancer, gambled it all on living to see the year 2000.

An intergenerational tale of what we live for and what we leave behind.

Directed by Jennifer Ward-Lealand join John Burrows in the NZ Premiere of Gary McNair’s “beautifully written, deceptively simple, warmly comic piece…” Lyn Gardner (The Guardian).
