David Spicer speaks to Ana Polataivao, the director and co-writer of The Factory, described as New Zealand’s very own ‘Pacific Les Misérables’, currently on tour around Australia.
Tell us about the journey of the Factory?
It was inspired by our parents and their journey to New Zealand. It is basically a migrant story. It started in 2010. Then in 2011 we put on a four week production. It was mental. It was like four weeks.
