Red Mole was the best-known alternative theatre company in New Zealand in 1978, when their nationwide tour of country halls and backstreet stages was recorded for this documentary (released in 1979). Red Mole later performed to very different but equally appreciative audiences in New York City. Alan Brunton and Sally Rodwell founded the company, and other members included Deborah Hunt, Ian Prior, Jan Preston, Jean McAllister and Martin Edmond. The documentary's director, Sam Neill, later became an internationally acclaimed actor in his own right.
