In 2014 the production Rita and Douglas was performed here by Jennifer Ward-Lealand and pianist Michael Houstoun. It explored the complex relationship between composer Douglas Lilburn and painter Rita Angus. A few years earlier this was the venue for Cathy Downes' one-person play The Case of Katherine Mansfield. In this recording Alison Laurie reads from Mansfield's journal about her relationship with Edith Kathleen Bendall.
