A Colonial Devotion

A Colonial Devotion tells the story of a newly-wed and pregnant Jane Deans who arrives at Riccarton from Scotland in 1853, little knowing that her promised life to a successful Canterbury farmer and pillar of the Church of Scotland is soon to demand every ounce of fortitude she can muster to survive. Based on ‘Letters to My Grandchildren’ by Jane Deans, this play brings to life the story of one of New Zealand’s most significant pioneering women.
