Pasifika play

Play performance for Pasifika prisoners

The 49 prisoners were treated to the performance of selected scenes from the play ‘The White Guitar’, by Wellington Performance Company The Conch Team, and found many parallels between their own lives and the characters in the play.

The White Guitar is an epic narrative starting in 1948 Samoa, through to Christchurch in 2011, and concluding in the present day. It covers the true story told by a father, Fa’amoana John Luafutu, and his two sons Mathias and Malo (“Scribe”).
