A stunning new play by The Conch.

Directed by Nina Nawalowalo and Jim Moriarty.

“I represent the thousand souls that never made it this far.” - Scribe

Following standing ovations and sell-out seasons in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch comes The White Guitar. Renowned hip-hop artist Scribe features with his father John and brother Matthias in this stunning new play - the true story of their family, the Luafutus.

A grandmother's dream of a better life in New Zealand collides with the reality of hardship and loss: a man's journey from boyhood innocence into the heart of darkness - through violence, drug addiction, prison and gangs - to the possibility of hope, healing, and redemption.

With the intensity of a live gig, music pumps through the story's veins - from the first songs of a grandmother as she sings along with her white guitar to the power of rock 'n' roll, the beats of hip-hop and church hymns.

A story of hardship, loss, hope, and healing.

“As the Christchurch audience rose to offer the Luafutu men a standing ovation I know I have just witnessed a seminal moment in New Zealand theatre history.” - (The Press)

"Theatre doesn't get more real than this." - (NZ Herald)

“The White Guitar is the best and most affecting piece of theatre I have seen, hands down, for a long time.” - (Theatreview)
