Last night I watched the most amazing performances by rangatahi from the greater Wellington region.

Hosted by Ōtaki College, in collaboration with Te Rākau Theatre, this production of The Battalion blew me away, made me laugh, and brought me to tears.

And even more amazingly, I had the opportunity to interview the director Jim Moriarty and a number of the rangatahi last week for Coast Access Radio.

The future of New Zealand theatre telling New Zealand stories is looking fantastic.
