What would you do to represent?

Willy’s a homestay Asian student. Mook’s Samoan and he’s been here for ages. They’re best mates at Timaru High. But when Willy decides his dream is to try out for the All Blacks, mateship — and everything else — is up for grabs.

A warm ‘feel good’ comedy with serious undertones — examines the question “what makes someone Kiwi?” (is it rugby, racing and beer – or being true to oneself and one’s friends?)

At frenetic pace, Ben Teh (The Bone Feeder, Odd Socks) and Paul Fagamalo (Rent, Where We Once Belonged) capture multiple characters – a Samoan aiga, a bored class of thirteen year olds, two entire rugby teams playing each other, and one sassy girl called George.

The First Asian AB is a new play from acclaimed New Zealand playwright Renee Liang (The Bone Feeder, Lantern).
