              "Tension is rising in 1970s New Zealand. Muldoons government is cracking down on illegal immigration and the notorious dawn raids are ripping Pasifika families from their beds. At the eye of this political storm, everyday New Zealanders like Sione struggle to keep their families ...united. Fuarosa, the familys resident overstayer, fights against the chaos to keep hold of her freedom and Siones sister Teresa might be getting in too deep with black rights activists. First staged in 1997, Dawn Raids is just as confronting and relevant now as it ever has been. Oscar Kightley pulls no punches and brings the play to life with his trademark hilarity and wit"--Publisher information.

              n The Pink Hammer, four women sign up for a carpentry workshop to find the tutor has absconded with their fees and left behind Woody, her disgruntled husband. Annabel, Louise, Helen and Siobhan invade Woody's man cave and persuade him to run the course. His neatly ordered sanctua...ry will never be the same. And neither will they. A comedy about unlikely friendships and finding empowerment with power tools. "...a comedy which, despite all its outward affability and talent to amuse, reveals something deeper about human relationships" The Press Flagons and Foxtrots recreates New Zealand's Saturday night dance-hall era of the 1960s. The Twist was all the rage, a bloke had to do the right thing and everyone drank sneaky pints in the car park. At Newbury Hall, the Archie Moore Trio is hoping to hit the big time, but Sid won't let them play. Jill longs to marry Jack, the lead singer, but he's knocked up her friend, Rita, in a one-night stand. Hilarity ensues as everybody scrambles to pick up the pieces during a night of music and dancing. "A bloody good night out that only the most committed misanthrope would refuse to enjoy" The Dominion

              The Boy Who Caused 9/11 and Other Plays brings together six challenging and original works for the stage aimed primarily at young performers and audiences. "Ken Mizusawa's work is startling, imaginative, challenging and utterly absorbing. It ranges from small to massive cast, ...deadly serious to deeply funny and addresses difficult issues with courage and compassion. These plays evoke a powerful response in audiences of any age, but especially for the young adults for whom they provide unusually rich and complex roles, and for whom they would be especially thought-provoking. So much work for 'the young' is condescending, careful and worthy, so it is exhilarating and re-freshing to find a writer like Mizusawa." Jean Betts, NZ Playwright, Actor and Director.
