Sons



A young half Samoan man goes to see his dying father after ten years of no contact. During his visit he sees a photograph of his half brother and sister whom he always knew existed but has never met. His assumption that his father will tell his siblings about him is painfully wrong..

Sons explores a volatile, fractured extended family which includes Samoan and NZ-born Samoans, a variety of palagi, a variety of afakasi (half caste), and a variety of family 'legitimacies'. The central relationship the play explores is between two half-brothers and their Samoan father.
