Te Tupua the Goblin

Whats On

An expertly crafted solo performance, delivered by a veteran of the New Zealand stage. John Davies inhabits nine characters, bringing to life an extraordinary corner of our history.

A Scottish lad of 10 is driven into slavery aboard his Majesties ships, circa 1800. After 15 years at sea, he is cast onto the shoreline of Aotearoa. The fight for survival begins. The occurrences within the play are based in historical evidence, and yet this tattooed Pakeha remains a potent figure in today’s political climate.

Ka whakahokia a Tupua he kōrero ia Whakarongo ki te tangi ra kua pahemo.
