You may wonder what Maori and Italians have in common. Well, the languages, food and customs of the cultures are brought together through drama, comedy, and song in a New Zealand play now heading to the Edinburgh Festival. Award-winning playwrights Rob Mokaraka and Paulo Rotondo spent five years researching for their production 'Strange Resting Places' - a World War Two story set in Monte Casino - which finds universal connections between otherwise alien cultures.
