About The Play
Michelanne Forster's play Daughters of Heaven centres around the case of Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme: two young girls from Christchurch whose obsessive friendship leads them to beat Pauline's mother to death with a half of a brick in a stocking.
Forster uses excerpts from the girls' diaries and from records of the trial to provide insight into the 1954 crime.
