Ahi Karunaharan - Tea
Tea is a new play from British-born, New Zealand-raised Sri Lankan playwright Ahi Karunaharan and it premieres at the Auckland Arts Festival in March 2018. Karunaharan is an actor, writer and director who has worked in the arts sector for shows, venues, production companies, and festivals in Aotearoa and around the world. He is an associate producer for Tawata Productions and the founder of Agaram Productions, which curated and produced the first ever South Asian Writers Festival. Tea is described as a sweeping saga that spans thousands of years, between the tea estates of Sri Lanka and a distant future.
