Tawata Productions presents He Reo Aroha - a compelling story of love and music - as part of the Going West Books and Writers Festival 2010.

Written by Miria George and Jamie McCaskill and directed by Hone Kouka, He Reo Aroha tells the story of two childhood sweethearts, Kaia and Pascoe - a pair that were always worlds apart. Kaia trains to sing, grooming her voice for greatness, while Pascoe works on the fishing boats with his father, a song never far from his lips. One summer’s night their voices entwine, sealing a love that will last a lifetime.

Choosing music over love, Kaia heads for New York, while broken-hearted while Pascoe follows in his father’s footsteps. But when life doesn’t bring Kaia and Pascoe all they hoped for, they discover it is music that gets them through and love brings them back together.

This charming love story, featuring original music by Hone Hurihanganui, Kali Kopae and Jamie McCaskill, has enjoyed successful seasons in Australia, the United States and at the NZ International Arts Festival 2010.

The NZ Listener said, “People who think romance is dead in Aotearoa should make it their business to see Hone Kouka’s touching but impressively unsentimental production of He Reo Aroha”.

The Dominion Post praised the actors, saying, “...the undoubted talents of its charismatic performers...make an impressive team imbued with charm, humour and enviable talent.”

He Reo Aroha features as part of the theatre season of the Going West Books and Writers Festival 2010. Please see for more information about the festival.
