A perfect life, a perfect secret. We’re all hiding something.

Liz and Peter Hunter have it all. A great marriage, successful careers, a beautiful house and two wonderful children.

Until their son Harry goes missing.

Distraught, they wait for news from the police, supported by social worker Anahera. As the hours pass and everyone is pushed beyond their limits, Anahera must make a stand. But is it already too late? Can Anahera save anyone?

“It’s not often that a script is a real page turner, the unexpected twists and turns that unfold in Anahera are extraordinary. Emma has crafted a story that not only will be so familiar with our audience but also shocking. That’s what makes it such a great script.” - Director, Katie Wolfe

Anahera is a contemporary domestic thriller about a struggling Kiwi family and the angel who stands up for them. This new play by Emma Kinane is an enthralling mix of an intense missing child drama, made so popular by hit show Broadchurch, and a behind-closed-doors look at New Zealand’s social services.
Starring:

Jacqueline Nairn (Shortland Street), Neill Rea (Brokenwood), Neenah Dekkers-Reihana (King Lear), Susie Berry (Don Juan), Simon Leary (Weed)
