New Zealand stories not to be forgotten for children and their families
The great white tree was a place where children came to play, to climb amidst its branches, a place where creatures made their homes, the birds in nests hidden amongst the leaves, or in the hollows where the roots dived deep into the earth. A place where people took a rest from long journeys. A place where the wind rustling in the leaves of the tree would tell it stories from distant places.
It was in this place that the White Tree was able to remember the story of the Huia family, the little yellow-eyed penguins – Hoiho – and the lumbering great green parrot – Kakapo. Stories of sadness and stories of hope. These memories are precious, and the Great White Tree is in danger. Who will remember?
The White Tree is a beautiful piece of theatre created by Little Dog Barking for the whole family. From the company that brought you Duck, Death and The Tulip, Guji Guji, Black Dog and Paper Shaper.
