The Vultures is the vivid new play by Mīria George – a story of familial greed and destruction.

The Vultures was inspired by conversations of privilege, clean water and Kiwi Māori navigating through a post settlement world. Mīria delves into ideas of wealth, crafting a family of privilege who helm an empire that dominates in the Western World.

Did we mention The Vultures is a comedy? Well, we've been using the phrase, 'indigenous satire' Māori tragi-comedy if you will.

Using ‘indigenous satire’ and otherworldly imagery The Vultures tells this tale of Sister Nurse Hinemoa and her siblings, Magazine Magnate Atawhai and Prodigious Businessman Petera, who were raised in the glow of privilege – enjoying a whakapapa of sailing on the lake, gin with their Indian Tonic Water, Coppertone on tanned Māori skin and a seemingly endless summer.

Long after their idyllic childhood at the Lake, the race for wealth and empire have splintered the whānau. To resolve the matter of their land the siblings have been called together and they must agree to expand the empire even if it means destroying the world in the process.

After all, clean water is a myth and water merely a tool to collect the waste of the world. Hey, money can’t buy you happiness. No wait – maybe it can.
