Four Friends and a Funeral TAPAC

Four friends, having lost contact with one another in recent years, arrive back in their little community for Tama’s funeral..

Over the few days of Tama's tangi the friends reminisce on the fun times they shared together with Tama. But the reunion also presents an opportunity to reflect on decisions each friend has made in their lives.

The lure of home, reconnecting with friends and tending to unfinished matters raises questions about what matters most in life and the meaning of true friendship.

Talented singers and comedic sketches will ensure the audience is well entertained by a story that also includes important messages for us all.

Written and produced by Eljon Fitzgerald, this play won Best Ensemble (Play) and Best Original Script & Production (New New Zealand Full Length Play)  at the 2021 Manawatū Theatre Awards.
