Noah McFarlane is a successful young TV music host. He’s also afakasi (half-cast). After a ten year silence, he goes to see his dying father, Man’ua. During his visit, he sees a photograph of his half-brother and sister, whom he always knew existed but has never met. Ignoring the advice of his mother and grandmother, he delves into his unexplored Samoan heritage with explosive and emotionally-gripping consequences.

Victor Rodger is an award-winning playwright and screenwriter whose works, including Sons, Ranterstantrum, My Name is Gary Cooper and Black Faggot, have changed the face of Pasifika theatre. In this, his semi-autobiographical first play, he explores a volatile, fractured extended family that includes Samoan and New Zealand-born Samoans, palagi and afakasi, and a variety of family “legitimacies”. Referencing Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Sons is a play of old sorrow, written in tears and blood. Once the emotional screws are turned up, it grips an audience and never lets go. Indelible!

Direction: David Fane
Cast Includes: Beulah Koale
