Ka-Shue (Letters Home) is an epic story of love, laughter, and loss, spanning one hundred years between China and New Zealand through the eyes of a Chinese family struggling to resettle in Aotearoa.  

Ka-Shue’ is a Cantonese phrase for 'Home Book' a poetic term covering everything about home, love, and alienation. Life is experienced through the eyes of three generations of the Leung family as they are swept across continents and time; the Second World War, the Tiananmen Square massacre of 1989, and the infamous buried history of the Poll Tax in New Zealand, £100 levied against Chinese migrants only (1896 to 1944). 

Ka-Shue (Letters Home) encompasses a broad sweep of the political events between the two countries as a backdrop for the personal dramas of the five characters played by one actor. 

Post Show Talk - Saturday 16th October

  • Warning - strong language & loud sound effects
  • Performed in Cantonese and English
  • Suitable for audiences 13 years +
