A play about the ill-fated attempt by Nelson colonists to confront Te Rauparaha and a party of his men at Tuamarina in 1843, in a dispute over ownership of the Wairau.

It was the first major armed clash between Maori and Pakeha in New Zealand, the only one ever in the South Island, and a pivotal point in Nelson’s early history, and indeed, colonial New Zealand race relations.

Written by Justin Eade (Maungatapu), directed by Giles Burton, and featuring Jaemes Peter Churchward, Kiri Naik, Nick Kemplen and Cameron West.
