A play on colonisation

I like theatre and I like creativity.

"Wanaka will adopt a strong Gallic flavour for a day next week to celebrate the world premiere of a Kiwi play.
New Zealand playwright Dave Armstrong's play Le Sud, which explores French colonisation of the South Island, is part of Wanaka's Festival of Colour."

"Le Sud assumes a successful French colonisation of the South Island has turned it into a wealthy, independent French-speaking nation, a stark contrast to the English-colonised North Island which is in constant recession with race-relations issues."

Interesting concept... be great to see a play where Maori colonise France or England.
