A Cook Islands born playwright is generating conversations around healthy relationships and safe sex in Pacific communities with her upcoming production 'Pane Provocations'.

Teherenui Koteka began scripting the play at 19 years old upon moving to New Zealand to study theatre.

Six years later, the proud Cook Islander is looking forward to the show's debut next week in Wellington. (6th-9th March).

RNZ Pacific's Tiana Haxton reached out to Ms Koteka.
