Blue Eyes NZ Playwright April Phillips has created a touching storyline into which she has woven many Sinatra favourites. As Frances prepares to farewell her beloved Mum, she visits the family home and finds some old letters. They are fan letters to Frank Sinatra, written by her late Mum when she was young, but never posted. As Frances reads them and learns of her Mum’s hopes and dreams, we are taken back to the '60s nightclub scene where, as a young woman, Frances' Mum regularly performs along with Jimmy and Andy, backed by a great live band and treating their audiences to some great Sinatra songs. But what happened to those dreams? Frances reads on – and finds out. To be directed by Merv Beets
