Girl on a Corner
After their sell-out season as part of the Auckland Arts Festival and Pride Festival, Girl on a Corner is back for a return season!
Early one morning in 1997 Eddie Murphy picked up Shalimar Seiuli, a Samoan fa'afafine, on Santa Monica Boulevard. Their encounter sparked an epic Hollywood media scandal. The next year Shalimar was dead. In Victor Rodger's Girl on a Corner, Shalimar gets to tell her brief life story and offer some variations on what may or may not have happened.
Girl on a Corner is the bold new work from the award-winning writer of Sons, My Name is Gary Cooper, Black Faggot and At The Wake.
Directed by Arts Laureates Anapela Polataivao and Vela Manusaute of the legendary Kila Kokonut Krew and stars Hope Lelei Prescott-Faletau as Shalimar, with Aleni Kilakokonutkrew Tufuga , Mika-Toloa Joanna Taufa Fisiinaua, Gabriel Halatoa, Sandy Fakaua and Hans Masoe.
