Tu is a majestic story of love, redemption, whanau and brotherhood.

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

"Moving in to this new evolution of Tu, I am excited by the challenge of creating with such dynamic artists, to give the script more richness and depth, and working with new collaborators. My hope is to create a beautiful and resonant piece of art." – 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 envelopes Tu and forces him to confront and embrace the ghosts of his past.

“… a profound experience that goes to the heart” – Theatreview

“… this beautifully paced production is a standout” – The Listener
