Amidst the confusion of disgruntled settlers, the young and innocent are left to play with fire. Spirits are high amongst the baptized, a feast is being prepared. The betrothed fall into waiting arms. Time is on the side of the infidel, as deceit beckons the wise.

Director Jim Moriarty says of The Ragged, ‘…we tackle the details of our existence’. Writer Helen Pearse-Otene, has crafted this new work, based around the settlement of Wellington.

“Samuel Kenning has travelled from Britain to claim his land in New Zealand. Instead he finds himself shipwrecked, declared a warrior and right hand to the local chief, Te Waipouri. Thaddeus Bly, with the firm ‘hand of God’ asserts his disciples. Mr Crippen, the government representative, visits to review the settlement”
