Saving Grace is a drama about friendship, faith, and betrayal. From an inauspicious first meeting at a Social Welfare office, Gerald and Grace discover in each other hidden talents and mysterious powers. But their bond becomes a shockingly dangerous one, destined for either greatness or tragedy.
Saving Grace was first produced for a play at Wellington's Bats Theatre in 1994. It was an immediate success, and won its young author, Duncan Sarkies, the prestigious Chapmann-Tripp Award for Best New Play, consolidating his reputation as a rising force in New Zealand theatre.
Saving Grace was director Costa Botes' (The Last Dogs of Winter) first feature film.
