Premiere of The Prospect by Maraea Rakuraku

THE PROSPECT / Written by Maraea Rakuraku / Directed by Tammy Davis

Te Manawanui pop: 522. Everything you need is here.

Three kids on the cusp of adulthood and a Duchess holding them altogether. An isolated rural predominantly M?ori settlement, 40 minutes from civilisation and an Uncle’s succession plan.

This is the setting for The Prospect that, explores the territory where the lines between gangs and whanau are blurred, communities are left to fend for themselves against an onslaught of violence and intimidation, a baldhead isn’t necessarily a Pakeha and the strength of your whanau is only as strong as each individual member within it.

FEATURING: Tola Newbery, Joe Dekkers Reihana, Moana Ete, Rob Ringiao Lloyd, Ralph Johnson and Grace Hoet.

DESIGN: Wai Mihinui, Jaimee Warda, Karnan Saba and Laurie Dean.
