Description

Frangipani Perfume brings fresh insight into the reality of Pacific Island women in New Zealand. Urale examines the tension between tradition and the reality of living in contemporary Western society. This is a powerful and accessible play, defined by its dynamic characterisations, and skating along the borders between broad comedy, feminist politics and the gentle lyricism of images and language originating in the natural beauty of the Pacific Islands. (1 act, 3 female).


Mapaki is a critically acclaimed one woman play, first performed by the author, Mapaki is the Niuean word for broken. This is a powerful work about a Niuean woman (Fisi) who is a victim of domestic violence and fantasy. Mapaki seeks to explore the emotional fragility and understanding Fisi undertakes to overcome her abusive situation. (1 act, 1 female).
