Interview: Peter Wells’ autobiography ‘Hello Darkness’ comes to the theatre

Peter Wells was a well-known author and filmmaker in Aotearoa New Zealand. He was a gay man who made a huge impact in both the screen industry and the literary world in this country. He died at the age of 69 in 2019 after a battle with cancer. While undergoing treatment and facing his mortality, Peter published a series of posts about his experience with illness on Facebook. These were subsequently published as a book called Hello Darkness shortly after his death. 

This week, a theatrical adaptation of the book will be staged during the Auckland Writers Festival. The show is written by Victor Rodger, directed by Shane Bosher, and stars Roy Ward. 

In this interview, Shane and Roy discuss this important work with Andrew Whiteside.
