The Honouring Theatre Festival premieres on our shores in June 2008, weaving together the very best of North American Indian, Australian Aboriginal and Maori theatre.

Twisting and pulling at the many issues that face indigenous nations, Native Earth, Yirra Yaakin and Tawata Productions, offer a unique opportunity for New Zealand audiences to engage in these issues through storytelling.

I Don't Wanna Play House – Yirra Yaakin
A gripping and ultimately celebratory one-woman-show peopled with boisterous characters. Tammy Anderson’s skill in evoking and differentiating the members of her family is consummate.

“One night my Dad came home and he got a screwdriver, and he undid the back of the TV, and he pulled out these huge blocks of Cadbury chocolate. He was real magic, my Dad. Real clever”.

I Don’t Wanna Play House is a kinetic swirl of monologue, movement, and song. Often heartbreaking as Anderson relives the abuse she and her family endured, this is predominantly a story of love, told with a singular lack of sentiment and wry humour.

“Anderson’s story deserves to become a classic of Aboriginal Theatre” - Helen Thompson, The Age
