Lively, spirited and fiercely written, Where We Once Belonged is an unflinchingly honest, sometimes brutal, yet wildly funny coming-of-age story set in 1970s Samoa.
Based on the 1994 Commonwealth Prize-winning novel by Sia Figiel, Samoa’s first female novelist, Where We Once Belonged is brought to life on stage by playwright Dave Armstrong (Le Sud, Motor Camp, Rita and Douglas). This adaptation won Dave and Sia the 2008 Chapman Tripp Theatre Award for Best New New Zealand Play.
The South Island debut of this award-winning play will entertain and astound audiences with its vitality.
“a colourful piece, bursting with life; wonderfully familiar to those who know this world"
