Not In Our Neighbourhood

Award-winning documentary theatre showcasing the many guises of domestic violence through the eyes of five women.
Touring Invercargill, Dunedin and Christchurch this September.
Following success at Auckland Arts Festival and New Zealand Festival, Tikapa Productions powerhouse theatre Not In Our Neighbourhood is making its South Island debut, performing in Invercargill, Dunedin and Christchurch this September.

Winner of Wellington Theatre Awards’ Best New New Zealand Play and Best Female Actor – Kali Kopae, the thought-provoking and refreshingly honest Not In Our Neighbourhood showcases the resilience of women facing the many guises of domestic violence.

A filmmaker is invited to Te Whāriki Manawāhine ō Hauraki, a refuge for women, to document its clients and raise awareness about domestic violence. While there she encounters Sasha, Cat and Teresa — three very different women from different backgrounds each with their own unique story to tell.

While working at the Hauraki Women’s Refuge, writer Jamie McCaskill was able to observe both the victims and perpetrators of domestic violence.

It is from these experiences that Not In Our Neighbourhood is built – a play which overcomes stereotypes of domestic violence in New Zealand. The play presents the lived experiences of five women in ways which inform, challenge and move audiences.

Actor Kali Kopae plays five characters in this astounding performance and brings the voices and experiences of survivors and support workers to the stage with respect, integrity and passion.

Not In Our Neighbourhood is performing in the South Island for the first time this September. Don’t miss out – book now.
