Remembering Michele Amas

From The Weekend, 8:39 am on 31 December 2016

Michele Amas - outstanding actress and poet, has been farewelled at her funeral in Wellington. In life she was on stage in countless plays mainly at Circa Theatre, and a writer - especially of poems. Her distinctive voice was in many RNZ plays, children's stories and readings over the years. She died from cancer on Boxing Day, another casualty of a brutal 2016 in terms of lost talent.
