A gutsy portrayal of whānau and motherhood, Mitch Tawhi Thomas’s multi-award-winning play is rooted in heartfelt comedy, brutal honesty, and the enduring human spirit.

Pakaru explores a young family helmed by Jess, a solo mother, trying to survive on the breadline in present day Aotearoa. Burdened by bills, social welfare, and a small pay packet, she faces huge expectations and teenage twins eager to explore the world without her. While battling to provide a life with dignity for her tamariki, she decides it is time to think about herself for a change and meets Tahi online. Their first date begins a whirlwind of laughter, tears, and surprises as this new man enters their lives.

Filled with real characters dealing with real issues, this critically-acclaimed family portrait is carried by – and speaks powerfully to – the value of everyday truth and aroha.

He whakaaturanga māia mō te whānau me te ao o te māmā, ko te iho o te whakaari toahanga nui a Mitch Tawhi Thomas ko te pukuhohe motuhenga, ko te pono herekore, ko te wairua manawaroa hoki o te tangata.

Ka whāia e Pakaru tētahi whānau taitamariki e arahina ana e Jess – he māmā takitahi e oke ana kia whai oranga i te pōhara i te Aotearoa o nāianei. Pokea ana e te nama, e te ratonga toko i te ora, e tana utu mahi iti noa hoki, e taimaha ana ia i ngā tūmanako nui me ētahi māhanga taitamariki tokorua e hiamo ana kia torohia te ao me te korenga o Jess. Nōna e tohe ana kia rangatira te ao o āna tamariki, ka whakatau ake a Jess kua eke te wā e whāia ai ko tāna i pai ai, me te aha, ka tūtaki ā-ipurangitia a Tahi. Ka tīmata i tā rāua putanga ipo tuatahi tētahi ara hukihuki i hua ai te kata, te roimata me te hua ohorere i te whai wāhitanga atu o tēnei tāne hōu ki ō rātou ao.

Kī pai ana i te kiripuaki tūturu e aro ana ki ngā take tūturu, e whakanuia ana tēnei tirohanga ki te whānau e te hunga arotake, me te aha, e kawea ana e te mana nui o te pono me te aroha o ia rā, ā, e whakanui ana anō i te mana o ēnei kura.
