Ngā Puke (The Hills) shows us that love can transcend all manner of boundaries - race, culture, time, distance. It shows us that by striving to discover our similarities we grow closer. Unlike differences which seek to drive us apart.
The play follows the love story of Angie and Waru - from their chance meeting at Ngā Puke to another chance meeting half way around the world in Crete. Through Waru and Angie we visit a generation that was prepared to sacrifice all to protect their country, their family and their way of life. A sentiment that may seem alien to us now but to whom we owe a huge debt.
The play is a celebration of love - for each other, for the land and a desire to protect both ancestors and future generations. It takes us on a journey using humour, pathos and history to inform and entertain.
