Prejudices that Maori living in rural New Zealand encounter everyday are challenged in a new play by Jamie McCaskill. The Wellington award-winning playwright, producer and director is tapping into his own experiences of living in a small town in a new play, The Biggest, which premieres at Hannah Playhouse in Wellington on 29 October He tells Lynn Freeman he's not finger wagging, but using comedy to make a point in the way Billy T James and Roger Hall do. And in his spare time, Jamie's working on a webseries combining his two loves - comedy and classic Maori show-bands. After just two days, the trailer for The Maori Sidesteps got 20,000 hits.
