A Boy Called Piano
To Premiere 2019
From the makers of The White Guitar comes a new play revealing the stories of NZ’s lost generation and the system that was supposed to protect them
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
In 2015, Fa’amoana and his sons bared their souls to audiences all around Aotearoa with the award winning The White Guitar. In 2018, drawing from his experiences and relationships formed through childhood, Fa’amoana reveals the story of A Boy Called Piano.
“I think the motivations for this story are important. The efforts to decolonise the criminal justice system in this country seems more urgent than ever.”
