Te Manawanui pop: 522. Everything you need is here.
Three kids on the cusp of adulthood and a Duchess holding them altogether. An isolated rural predominantly Māori settlement, 40 minutes from civilisation and an Uncle's succession plan.
This is the setting for The Prospect that, explores the territory where the lines between gangs and whānau are blurred, communities are left to fend for themselves against an onslaught of violence and intimidation, a baldhead isn't necessarily a Pākehā and the strength of your whānau is only as strong as each individual member within it.
Featuring Tola Newbery, Joe Dekkers-Reihana, Moana Ete, Rob Ringiao Lloyd, Ralph Johnson & Grace Hoet.
Design Laurie Dean (Lights), Karnan Saba (Sound), Wai Mihinui & Jaimee Warda (Set & Costume).
