The Mana vaine’ crew. The Mana vaine’ crew.

Mana vaine Mother Nature reminded us of her presence and power when she sent rain on Friday evening. Rehab was the venue for a new play, Mana vaine’ by Teherenui Koteka.


Fittingly, the play was about exploring the power of women and the demand to be at the centre of decision making in the world.

The Seabed Minerals Bill 2019 was under scrutiny with the view of protection for our environment.

Congratulations to Koteka for an enjoyable comedy that highlighted serious issues.

Congratulations to the cast whose great performances made the characters real and relatable.
