A play about the ill-fated attempt by Nelson Colonists to confront Te Rauparaha and a party of his men at Tuamarina in 1843, in a dispute over ownership of the Wairau. The first major armed clash between Maori and Pakeha in New Zealand, and a pivotal point in Nelson's early history, and indeed New Zealand race relations.

Following on from the short play and Q and A sessions at the 2019 Nelson Heritage Festival, this is the full play for the 2020 Nelson Heritage Festival.

Featuring - Jaemes Peter Churchward, Kiri Naik, Cameron West and Nick Kemplen.

Written by Justin Eade, directed by Giles Burton.

Produced by Emily Thompson and Justin Eade
