ORT Annual General Meeting - @ Otamatea Repertory Theatre, Bickerstaffe Road, Maungaturoto, Thursday 16th November 2023 at 7pm. All welcome.

Manawapou is the life and death story of Tuwae, a young man flooded with thoughts of hopelessness and doubt. In the midst of his struggle two strangers arrive to offer opposing views on the choice that’s ahead for him.

This powerful play, written by Paparoa resident Aroha Silenzio presents the tug of war over Tuwae’s soul and his journey to discover his own song.

This drama is followed by Manawapou mahi - an interactive time of creative response to Manawapou.
