What does it mean to reclaim Māoritanga from a Pākehā upbringing? That’s the premise of Isaac Martyn’s (Ngāti Tūwharetoa, Te Arawa) show, which weaves together elements of stand-up comedy, waiata and theatrical performance to explore the complicated nature of identity informed by Martyn’s own dual Māori and Pākehā lineage.

After two sold-out seasons in Pōneke Wellington and successful runs at Te Pou Theatre, don’t miss this talented new generation playwright’s highly praised and meaningful show. “This show is for somebody who is ever doubting

if they are Māori enough, for rangatahi who are curious to know more about their whakapapa but don’t know where to start.” – Isaac Martyn

“Isaac Martyn’s delivery and script feels honest, full of charisma and aroha ...This is local theatre doing what it does best – challenging us while telling the stories of this land.” – THEATREVIEW
