Troilus and Cressida, The famous Shakespeare tragedy – in Te Reo Maori! Set during the Trojan wars, Troilus and Cressida follows the love between a Trojan prince and maiden and features struggles of power, hierarchy and honour between some of history’s greatest characters. Immediately following the New Zealand International Arts Festival it travelled on to London to represent New Zealand at the international Globe to Globe festival – an unprecedented programme at London’s Globe Theatre of 37 multi-lingual Shakespeare productions from around the world.

Adapted by Ngakau Toa, with a new translation by Te Haumiata Mason and featuring a host of our most respected Maori actors making up the cast. Rawiri Paratene (Whale Rider) stars as Pandarus. Directed by Rachel House and Wetini Mitai-Ngatai.
