She is the last and now she too waits to depart.”

A potential future. Set at Wellington's International Departure's Lounge.

As her boarding call nears, a battle weary Mary finds the flight is delayed. She is confronted by the despairing Peter, bringing with him revelations of why her family have departed. Mary is joined by others, Solomon, an anxious young man who awaits his first flight abroad; Ana, a restless young cleaner who has finished her dayshift and the worldly wise traveller Imlah, who awaits her own flight.

and what remains is a story which foreshadows the possibility of ethnic cleansing in New Zealand.

Emerging Pacific Islands Artist of the Year (2005), Miria George (Rarotonga, Atiu, Cook Islands; Te Arawa, Ngati Awa) has refined her controversial play and what remains preparing the play for the Return Season 2006.

and what remains has been invited to premiere at the Pasifika Styles Festival, University of Cambridge, England, April, 2007.
