Five counts of reckless use of Māori mythology, four counts possession and cultivation of Shakespeare, and one count dangerous operation of a voice class...
Enter the world of Cellfish, where hardened inmates come face to face with a whole new nightmare: Shakespeare classes with Miss Lucy!
Starring celebrated actors Jason Te Kare (Ngāti Maniapoto, Tainui) and Carrie Green (Ngāti Porou, Ngāi Tahu) – this funny, insightful and gripping work takes us behind the walls of a New Zealand correctional facility and into the minds of its residents. Some are looking to improve their parole chances, others want to kill some time and one just wants to kill.
“An extraordinary achievement… Hilarious, upsetting and profoundly on point with what it has to say about the inter-generational cycle of violence.” – The Spinoff
"Woven together, it is a brilliant display of theatrical virtuosity and a rare chance to watch two extraordinarily talented actors show off their skills." - NZ Herald
