The next instalment of The PLAYMARKET METRO THEATRE PLAYREADING SERIES in Mangere examines the world of a binge-drinking Samoan and the impact his lifestyle has on his teenage son, Palagi wife and his relationship with his mother.
His Mother’s Son, by Leilani Unasa, is particularly resonant at a time when we are being empowered to tell our friends and family to ‘ease up on the drink’.
Unasa says “For me, the play is about what happens when you ignore the warning signals. And it’s about how loved ones learn to cope in dysfunctional circumstances. There’s lots of room for laughs and some for tears as well.”
