Two worlds collide when mild-mannered optometrist Ata and fierce sea maiden Whetū fall in love. The result: a child of both land and sea, with Ata and Whetū navigating challenges of cross-cultural relationships, the loss of Ata’s friend and differing ideas of parenthood.​

Set against the backdrop of a climate in crisis, Sing to Me is a powerful reimagining of pūrākau, stories of old, in the 21st century.​

Let it transport you to another world, a realm wonderfully crafted from the talented minds of playwright Alex Lodge, director Miriama McDowell, and a creative team including Jane Hakaraia, Te Aihe Butler and Te Ura Hoskins.
