TE WAKA HUIA
"Thereís no place like home. But if everyone leaves and the place is empty . . . is it still home then?"
Te Waka Huia is a play inspired by the 1963 Brynderwyn bus crash. It is a fictional tribute to those who died in NZís worst road accident, and to those who have lived with the loss ever since.
The play takes place in the present day. Pahi - accompanied by his ghosts - is the sometime resident of a derelict bus in an abandoned paddock on the outskirts of small town Helensville. When two teenagers move in, drawn by their own sense of homelessness, Pahiís tangled worlds of past and present collide. As his secrets unravel, and the threat of losing the bus becomes clear, the three discover a truth: whatever it looks like, home is worth fighting for.
