Under the African Sun comes from Passengers, a music theatre work by Fiona Farrell. First produced in Palmerston North to commemorate Suffrage Year, the play is based on the experiences of young women coming to New Zealand in the mid-nineteenth century on one of the early sailing ships. The ship is becalmed in equatorial waters and one of the women gradually loses her mind, jumps overboard and drowns.
