A Frigate Bird Sings by Oscar Kightley, David Fane... and Nathaniel Lees is a funny and moving celebration of difference. A young faafafine is searching for answers to conflicting expectations of identity and duty in this comical and deeply touching play. a subtle, beautifully observed study of one of the most precious and intriguing gifts of Polynesian culture the third sexa classic of NZ theatre Anita McNaught My Name is Gary Cooper by Victor Rodger balances post-colonial politics, humour and eroticism as it questions the expoloitation and stereotyping of Pacific peoples by Westerners. My Name is Gary Cooper is a rollercoaster ride through cultural appropriation and sexual deception. Taro King by Vela Manusaute takes us to a South Auckland Supermarket where hopes, dreams and low-price taros are feverishly negotiated, and where the workers dream of something bigger and brighter that the glaring lights of aisle four. Rushing Dolls by performance poet Courtney Sina Meredith expresses in poetry and drama the complex desires and explosive energy of successful young Polynesian women. Cleo is searching for the perfect job and life in the shiny city but the pressures of family responsibility and following her dreams almost overwhelm her.

              Jimmy Te Rehua is a young Maori boy with the I.Q of a genius. His nature is irrepressible while his passion for electronics and video-games like Pacman and Donkey Kong is infectious. When Mister Macrae, the elderly Scottish proprietor of the Astrocade video-game parlour on The... Strand saves Jimmy from being beaten up by Mick Jones, the local town bully, he finds himself begrudgingly drawn into Jimmy's life which is vastly different from his own self-imposed exile from the world. Mister Macrae and Jimmy are able to relate to each other's experiences of living on societies fringe. Inspired by Jimmy's enthusiasm, Mr Macrae creates the video-game world champs, and competitors from different parts of the world meet to compete at the Astrocade.
