"Before the first morning, in the time of the Shiverman, when the ground trembled and fire tumbled down the mountainside, the music began."

On a tiny Pacific island, Roy Turner is on the brink of announcing the discovery of a lifetime. But as American researchers and aid workers land on the island, Roy's football-mad assistant Tatalau'e faces a choice. Should he play by the ancient rules of his people or should he move with the times, and risk the wrath of the Shiverman?
"Human rights? Who are you to say what is right for humans?"

A magical and provocative new play.
"Littler's production grips ferociously, pulsing with ideas and excitement as the tension tightens like a torniquet"
