Opening night of a world premiere  – and it’s a passionate and eloquent drama of a family polarised by a gamut of emotions: pride, determination, challenge and heritage.

by Glenda Pearce - January 31, 2022

Opening night of the second play of the Shoreside's Auckland Shakespeare in the Park - and it's raining.
