A show where personal stories underscore barriers Māori have to accessing health care is playing in the Auckland Fringe Festival.  Barrier Ninja is a one woman performance, based on real-life recordings of doctors, patients and nurses speaking of inequity and the need to cut through red tape, much like a ninja.

Barrier Ninja deviser and University of Otago academic Fran Kewene tells Lynn Freeman ultimately this is a heartwarming and hopeful piece.
