A quest to discover the importance of being different…
Capital E National Theatre for Children presents a brand new production of Gavin Bishop’s iconic New Zealand story, Kiwi Moon. A little white kiwi thinks the moon might be his mother because it is white and bright and round like him. Prepare to snuffle and shuffle through the forest floor, hula with the huhu grubs, watch out for the wekas, and calypso with the handsome kakapo in this charming tale of one little white kiwi’s quest to find his place in an often strange and sometimes dangerous world.
Kiwi Moon was originally presented by Capital E in 2008, written and directed by Peter Wilson.
Adapted for the stage by Rachel Callinan
