THE CONCH AND TOUR-MAKERS PRESENT THE WHITE GUITAR
Directed by Nina Nawalowalo and Jim Moriarty
Renowned hip-hop artist Scribe features with his father John and brother Matthias in this new play – the true story of their family, the Luafutus.
A Samoan grandmother’s dream of a better life in New Zealand collides with the reality of hardship and loss: a man’s journey from boyhood innocence into the heart of darkness – through violence, drug addiction, prison and gangs.
To the possibility of hope, healing and inspiration.
With the intensity of a live gig, music pumps through the story’s veins – from the first songs of a grandmother as she sings along with her white guitar to the power of rock ‘n’ roll, the beats of hip-hop and church hymns.
