Set in the South West of Ireland 1999, at a nunnery near the fictitious village of Sibeal (County Kerry), two young women are on their big OE when they come face-to-face with the super-natural force of Briar Faith.
Te Rēhia Theatre brings you the premiere of Albert Belz’s new award-winning thriller Cradle Song (Adam Award, Best play by a Māori playwright 2018). Belz won his first playwright's award for Yours Truly (2006) a now iconic New Zealand thriller. This new work is his reaction to the tragic discovery of a mass children’s grave which was part of a Home for Unmarried Mothers in the township of Tuam, Ireland.
Starring Donogh Rees and directed by Tainui Tukiwaho this special debut season is housed in a church setting at Corban Estate Arts Centre.
Enjoy a night of chilling intrigue and celebrate some stunning new playwriting at Te Pou Theatre's 4th Kōanga Festival 2018, a Mihi to Spring Time.
