After a long and tumultuous journey, Mission Bay locals Flo and her wife Jo are in the final stages of adopting a child, and now, they're ready to share the imminent arrival of the newest member of their family with Marie, Flo’s highly conservative big sister. Expect fireworks as Flo and Jo prepare to break the news and get ready for a dinner party that you won't forget.

Po' Boys and Oysters is a deep dive into what it means to be black, lesbian, and living in Tāmaki Makaurau. Funny and sophisticated, this new and original play by Estelle Chout (2021 NZ Adam Playwriting Award finalist) dishes up insights into sibling dynamics, cultural differences, and the ultimate power of family. Directed by Dione Joseph and featuring Estelle Chout, Sandra Zvenyika and Sonya Renee Taylor with Andrew Johnson and Jack Briden.
