Awatea
The town of Omoana seems to be dead except for its annual hui financed by the town's one celebrated son, Matt Paku, a doctor in Auckland. But in his latest letter to his father, it appears that Matt is not a doctor at all but a freezing worker who has hoodwinked the whole community.
Birds In The Wilderness
Set in 1957. In a wild plan to extend their lifestyle Juliet and Bernie Bascombe buy an old house that was formerly a corset factory. But Bernie has put an accommodation ad in the paper, and a crazy assortment of people arrive, who help turn the place into an operational furniture factory.
Blood Of The Lamb
A sensitive revealing drama about a lesbian couple who are confronted by the daughter of one of the women, Victoria, on her return to NZ to get married.
Courting Blackbird
A theme and variations in the baroque style: the account of the eruption into NZ life of Boris Godunov (Bo) Baron, Jew and Marxist.
Hongi
An unhistorical study of 'the noble savage', Hongi, who met George IV in 1821 and returned to NZ more savage than before.
Swan Song
James Smithson is dying of leukemia; his ferocious daughter Kura, in a sense of bitter duty, is grimly shepherding him about NZ's tourist spots before he dies. His life passes before his eyes in a running delirium as he approaches death, and is acted out as the main material of the play.
The End of the Golden Weather (company version)
This quintessential Kiwi classic chronicles the friendship between a 12-year-old boy and the wild-limbed Firpo. Through the boy's eyes we see the wonder of life on a perfect beach, in a perfect 1930s New Zealand, during a perfect summer. It's a world of magic and transformation, where anything can happen and miracles seem possible.

The Pohutukawa Tree
Aroha Mataira, an elderly Maori woman, clings to the last acre of her tribal land. A convinced and passionate Christian, she attempts to instruct her son Johnny and daughter Queenie in Pakeha ways, against which, in various modes, they rebel. Her world smashed, Aroha wills herself to death.
