Daughters of Heaven

By Michellanne Forster
Directed by Helen Mackenzie

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.
