White Rabbit Red Rabbit
MITCH TAWHI THOMAS
Whānau, secrets, lies, shame and the challenge of defying Māori tradition.
After twenty years, four estranged brothers are reunited by the death of their father. Bristling with expectation, difference and damage, the brothers sort through tangled recollections of the past and struggle to articulate their brotherly love in the now. These are lives at the moment of reckoning.
Mitch Tawhi Thomas writes muscular urban poetry and his working relationship with visionary director Rachel House goes way back. In 2003, their Have Car Will Travel gave Silo’s audience a bruising take on the dispossessed. Ten years on, they reunite to delve into the dark corners of manhood.
Incendiary, brave and authentic NZ drama that commands complete engagement.
An Auckland Arts Festival Production.
