Are we living in the age of exile?
A woman of great privilege becomes caught up in the refugee crisis. Torn between her loyalties to her conservative husband and her desire to help displaced people on an offshore island, she finds herself unwittingly at the centre of a national scandal. Now she must take a stance, and the consequences could throw her life, and various others', into turmoil.
Shortlisted for the 2016 Adam NZ Play Award and written by Manawatu's own Angie Farrow, The Politician's Wife is an unapologetic response to the global refugee crisis, which has dominated headlines and divided the world.
