A young New Zealand expatriate returns to Sri Lanka to discover tragedy; his ancestral village and people have been washed away in the devastating tsunami of 2004. His search among the debris for his family and cultural roots take him on a journey.

The Mourning After is about homecoming amongst the ramifications of a natural disaster.

It connects Dilmah Tea, cricket, the recent civil war and Spielberg’s Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom, to transport audiences to a Sri Lanka they’ve never seen before. Exploring themes that will resonate with New Zealanders, the play examines reclaiming life post natural disaster.
