The Sun and the Wind
In this surreal, heartbreaking, impactful new play, experience a birthday unlike any other.
Rangi and Hūkerikeri, in the midst of quiet celebrations, are caught off-guard when two uninvited guests crash through the door of their home. Hihi and Kate are there to rob the place, until they’re mistaken as the couple’s deceased son and his wife.
An emotional rollercoaster of grief, hope, love and loss, The Sun and the Wind deftly explores the moral of ‘persuasion over force’ within a gripping human drama where the threat of violence meets the power of tenderness. It’s also a beautiful, heartfelt ode to whānau and connection you won’t soon forget.
