Blanket and Musket Productions is pleased to present.. PATUA..

Fresh from one of New Zealand’s hottest Maori playwrights, Renae Maihi, comes PATUA, a brave new story about the death of a small child at the hands of her family. PATUA is a verb that means to strike, hit, beat, kill, subdue, ill-treat.

This story centres on baby Moni who has been beaten to within an inch of her life, a life that was wrought with poverty, desperation and broken hearts. But her cry for justice and love will not be unheeded when in a twist of fate, her unknown extended whanau discover the truth and bury her as the princess she should have been.Before it has even hit the stage, PATUA is already scooping awards with Renae Maihi receiving Best Play by a Maori Playwright at the recent ADAM NZ Play Awards.

Featuring a stellar cast of superb talent, PATUA welcomes to the stage: William Davis, Stephen Butterworth, Aroha Hathaway, Maria Walker, Cian Elyse White, Vinnie Bennett, Mohi Critchley and introducting Ngahuia Piripi. TAPAC 100 Motions Road Western Springs, Auckland
