Patricia Grace’s award-winning novel is the inspiration for this powerful return to the stage by celebrated playwright and director Hone Kouka.

Weaving together text and image, Tu is an epic tale set against 1940s Wellington, the battlefields of Monte Cassino and post-war Te Tairawhiti on the North Island’s East Coast. After years of self-imposed exile, old Tu is found and visited by his brother’s children. In search of answers, their presence triggers an unstoppable wave of memories that envelops Tu and forces him to confront and embrace the ghosts of his past.

Hone Kouka’s previous theatrical works include I, George Nepia, the internationally acclaimed Waiora and the 2004 New Zealand International Arts Festival premiere of The Prophet. With Kirk Torrance starring as Tu, this is a majestic story of love, redemption, whānau and brotherhood.

With support from Creative New Zealand.
