Antony is Samoan.
Benny is Cook Island Maori.
But no-one can tell them apart.
The smash hit of the 2017 Hamilton Fringe Festival is back!
After sold-out shows last year, Antony-Paul Aiono and Benny Marama’s musical-comedy-drama Spot the Difference returns to The Meteor Theatre for two nights.
The play tells the story of two Pasifika theatre practitioners who feel isolated in their own city, and decide that the only course of action is to create a theatre piece about it.
Weaving songs, prose and comedy within a meta-narrative, Spot the Difference is both a piece about the creation of a personal work and a play about two Pasifika performers dealing with the insidiousness of casual racism.
“…Marama and Aiono are challenging audiences to not deny or dismiss racism as something that works on a larger scale and on more levels than many of us see.”
