BRIAR GRACE-SMITH, HONE KOUKA, FIONA FARRELL
New Zealand

Three very different and exciting contemporary playwrights - Briar Grace-Smith, Hone Kouka and Fiona Farrell - discuss what inspires, challenges and intrigues them as they write for the New Zealand stage.

Briar Grace-Smith, of Nga Puhi descent, is an award-winning playwright. Her plays include Nga Pou Wahine, When Sun and Moon Collide and Purapurawhetu.

Hone Kouka is a prize-winning playwright, short story writer, poet and actor, whose plays have been produced both overseas and in New Zealand. He has published five books and is a co-founder of the theatre production house, Tawata Productions. In 2009 he became a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for Services to Contemporary Maori Theatre.

Fiona Farrell is best known as an award- winning novelist, poet and non-fiction writer. Her latest play, Snap, adapted from Ngaio Marsh's novel, Photo Finish, will premiere later this year.
