A Manatū Taonga audio guide to the Riff Raff statue in Hamilton. Check out the Ministry for Culture and Heritage's audio guide in the image carousel above.

A statue in Hamilton pays tribute to former resident Richard O'Brien, creator of the kitschy, gender-bending 1970s musical The rocky horror show. The statue depicts Riff Raff, the character played by O'Brien in the movie version, which became a cult hit. A 1986 New Zealand production of the musical famously featured former prime minister Robert Muldoon as the narrator.
