Plays with a Purpose

From Standing Room Only, 12:50 pm on 22 May 2016

The Centrepoint Theatre in Palmerston North is determined to get people thinking and talking about the current refugee crisis.

On 28 May (Amnesty International Day) they launch the Plays with a Purpose season – three plays questioning whether countries like ours have a responsibility to help displaced refugees. The plays are Angie Farrow's The Politician's Wife (which was shortlisted for the 2016 Adam NZ Play Award), international hit White Rabbit Red Rabbit and a reading of Lampedusa by Anders Lustgarten.
