You’re invited to the wedding reception of Māori woman Hera and Aboriginal man Kane, two ambitious and deeply in love career hotshots who have their perfect day flawlessly mapped out.
But there’s one thing Hera and Kane can’t control – their families.
As the biggest mob of Aunties, Uncles and cousins from both sides of the ‘ditch’ get worked up for the blackest wedding ever, reality sinks in fast. Will this international love story bring two strong cultures together, or will it blow Hera and Kane’s world apart?
Featuring a live band rocking out retro classics, Black Ties is an irreverent new work from two leading First Nations theatre companies: ILBIJERRI Theatre Company (Australia) and Te Rēhia Theatre (Aotearoa/New Zealand).
Uncle Jack Charles, Mark Coles Smith, Lisa Maza and Brady Peeti feature.
