It's back! After two years of development, the Taki Rua te reo Māori He Kura E Huna Ana returns to The Forge at The Court Theatre at the end of this month.

We're also holding a special matinee at 2pm on Saturday, April 1.

He Kura E Huna Ana is drawn from the beauty of traditional Kāi Tahu legend about ancestors Waitaiki and Tamaahua who are torn apart by Poutini, a jealous taniwha.

Now directed by Nancy Brunning and starring Christchurch local Kim Garrett, the play follows the modern day story of Hine, a young doctor-in-training who's return to her papa kāinga leads her to confront the tragic loss of her family on the anniversary of their death.

Raised solely by her Taua, Hine must find understanding and consolation within the story of the pounamu trail and the depths of the Arahura River.

Written by emerging playwright Hōhepa Waitoa, an uncompromising champion of te reo Māori, the debut season of He Kura E Huna Ana quickly sold out The Forge at The Court Theatre in 2015.
