After miserably failing her studies in NZ, scholarship student Mahina Faka decides to return to Niue.

To add insult to injury, Mahina returns with her vegetarian, atheist, Indian fiancé Engelbert.

Controversy stirs in the village as Engelbert attempts to fit in, while Mahina’s hunky ex-boyfriend & bad boy Tote tries to rekindle the flame.

A clash of culture ensues between Mahina’s fiancé and family, bringing the ultimate drama for Mother Fakatali Faka’s 50th birthday.

Meet the Fakas is filled with witty one-liners, awkward situations, and comedy that will blow the wig off your mama.

Written by Maree Webster. Co-Directed by Leki Jackson Bourke and Maree Webster.

Meet the Fakas won two awards at the 2017 Auckland Theatre Awards: Outstanding Newcomer, and Best show.
