A play written by Paora Trim and Nicola Easthope.

Set in the peaceful village of Parihaka, a husband and wife (Haeata and Maioha) are separated after he is arrested for protesting peacefully. Rolleston and Bryce make plans to clear the land and villagers. Te Whiti and Tohu have other ideas. When the land is taken, Haeata is sent to Dunedin prison to do hard labour.

This show made with the students of Kāpiti College is a combined effort using dance, original music pieces, poetry, kapa haka, drama and more. They have contributed original works which will be woven through a beautiful story of loss, love and hope. The Parihaka values established by Te Whiti and Tohu, such as equality, peace, non-violence, sanctuary and future, enable us to make our own "Parihaka".

Proceeds raised from this event will go towards the continued fundraising efforts of the new Kāpiti Performing Arts Centre.
