TE POU - the Auckland home of Maori theatre, Rina's Cleaning Service and Auckland Fringe present:

The Black Orchid Paradisa 

A group of misfits including a barman, a cashier, two ghosts, and a God, recall stories of their past in a supernatural, fantastical, and music filled night. The eclectic bunch resides in "The Village" an old resort in Fiji abandoned during its development after the coup d'etat of 1987. What remain are a Backpackers and a painfully tacky faux Fijian village reminiscent of Gilligan's Island and a club on a slow night. It is a tourist trap, a wasteland, and a goldmine for forgotten stories.

We are bringing to you a development season of the play based on real stories from Fiji. We explore the different facets of Fiji through Fijian, Indian, and Western perspectives, and delve into mythology in many senses of the word.
