We are sorry but the schools matinee is currently sold out.
A filmmaker has been invited to Whāriki Manawāhine ō Hauraki, a refuge for women, to document its clients and raise awareness about domestic violence. While there, she meets four very different women from varied backgrounds with their own unique stories to tell.
Written by director, actor and award-winning playwright Jamie McCaskill, Not in our Neighbourhood is a gripping play that takes a close look behind the mask of domestic violence and reveals the despair, the misguided loyalties, the pain and the hope that lie there. Kali Kopae (Hīkoi) plays five characters in an astounding, virtuoso performance that brings the voices and experiences of the survivors and support workers to the stage with respect, integrity and passion.
Take this rare opportunity to witness documentary theatre in the making at this powerful New Zealand play.
NB: Contains swearing and brief verbal violence
