Sometimes all there is left is family...even if you hate their
Mitch Tawhi Thomas' new play Hui relates with
devastating clarity and courage, a story about whānau, secrets,
lies, shame and the challenge of defying Māori tradition.
After 20 years, four estranged brothers are reunited upon the
death of their father. What ensues is a visceral, charged and
stormy night as the brothers grieve for their dead father, sort
through tangled recollections of the past and struggle to
articulate their brotherly love.
Under the direction of 2012 New Zealand Arts Foundation Laureate
Award recipient Rachel House (The Māori Troilus and
Cressida) expect some intense and dynamic physicality driving
Tawhi Thomas' poetic and punchy words.
Be among the first in New Zealand to see this incendiary, brave
and authentic New Zealand drama.
