Gosh it’s warm here.

With many thanks to the Apia High Commission, I was able to attend the last two nights of Goodbye My Feleni‘s season in Samoa. Yep.

It took a village, of course:

  • the actors — Sakura Siaosi Seumanutafa, George Randolph Tuiletufuga, Myka Stanley, Tonumaipe’a J Aiolupotea, Iosefa Enari, Joshua E G Aiono, and Anthony Sileli O’Byrne;
  • the directors Fiona Collins and Gaea Asolelei To’alepai;
  • the production was driven by Sophie Vickers for the Apia High Commission, overseen by High Commissioner Jacqui Frizzell, and supported by Mary Hughes and fellow high commission people;
  • and the awesome people at Home Cafe — Frank the Island’s Most Aws’ BaristaLoia the ChefSetu the BouncerJay the Friendly Taxi Driver, and Marianne the Bar Manager.

I’m chuffed: that Feleni has been shared overseas again; and that the play has enabled me to visit my parents’ birth country.
