Synopsis:

Sebastian is fed up with his life, his job, and relationships.

His indecision leads to him visiting a psychic, who reveals to him a story of New Zealand set in the year 2063. New Zealand is a nation transformed. The sea levels have risen forcing a mass migration of refugees, who find asylum in the regions south of Auckland. As the refugees begin to build a strong society and elect leaders, a political crisis arises, as the refugee's desire a peaceful cultural diversity, whilst the 'The City' seeks control.

Sebastian's granddaughter Lou is a pivotal figure in this story. In her lies the answer for Sebastian's struggles and the future of the entire country.

Crossing through multiple genres - this piece has been referred to by watchers as a comedic telling of a political mystery thriller. Don't miss out on the opportunity to travel to another world and see this vibrant original work on stage. This show has never been seen before and is unlikely to ever be performed again. Literally a once in a lifetime opportunity.
