Marking the launch of the Homestead's annual 'Summer Theatre in the Gardens' programme and staged outdoors against the backdrop of the magnificent historic centre, this play centres around the Kreber family; a matriarchal Samoan wife Luisa, her American husband Frank, and their only son David.
Think of a Garden opens in American Samoa in 1929 during the tumultuous colonial era of Samoa's struggle for political independence during the non-violent Mau movement. The Samoan view of family, deference for the dead, behaviour in times of mourning, even concepts of time - all are deftly etched beside the story of Samoa's early move toward independence. The effect is a story as textured as a fine mat.
Four nights only:
Thursday 25 January - Sunday 28 January 8pm.
