We've got the cows and we've got the bees but is New Zealand really the land of milk and honey?
New Zealand's first-ever Pacific musical, The Factory, is an entertaining and entirely unique exploration of the Samoan migrant experience. Hilarious and heartfelt, this vibrant funk-fuelled musical weaves a romantic narrative and wry lyrics into a tribute to the courage of the Pacific peoples who came to Auckland during the 1970s, searching for ways to support the families they left behind and striving to make new lives for themselves.
This production was created with support from Auckland Arts Festival and Creative New Zealand.
