Take the internationally renowned duo Mary Kippenberger and Peter Charlton-Jones, mix in some fairytales, a bit of pantomime, slightly wicked songs, throw in costumes and a child or two and you have…RHUBARB!…interactive storytelling, music, fun and laughter for the whole family.

Husband and wife team, Mary Kippenberger and Peter Charlton-Jones have lived in Otane, Central Hawkes Bay for the past 29 years. Mary has been telling stories professionally since 1994, Peter made his first guitar at the age of ten.

If they are not wandering the globe telling tall stories to small people they are conducting residential workshops, drama classes, music festivals, presenting plays, concerts and recording music on their Otane property. Peter and Mary, their children, grandchildren, brothers and nephew all live at Te Rangi Farm. It is a happy kingdom!
