Set in Marlborough in the late 1860s, The Bellbird brings the worlds of Maori and Pakeha together in a haunting play of passion, family politics and despair. A touching, tragic romance between a Pakeha woman and a Maori man. On the death of her husband she is no longer welcome back in her own community and her deceased husband’s family want nothing to do with her.
“A play of heart and soul and a valuable addition to our literature.” Peter Calder, NZ Herald.
