Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Monday 15th April 2019
This is a staged reading of a short play in development, about the ill-fated attempt by Nelson Colonists to confront Te Rauparaha and a party of his men at Tuamarina in 1843, in a dispute over ownership of the Wairau.
The first major armed clash between Maori and Pakeha in New Zealand, and a pivotal point in Nelson's early history, and indeed New Zealand race relations.
With public Q and A afterwards.
Play written by Justin Eade, directed by Giles Burton, Featuring Cameron West, Nick Kemplen and Matt Lattin.
