LITTLE BLACK BITCH is an Adam NZ Play Award-winning play by Jason Te Mete that blends mythology, waiata and black comedy.
When Matiu took his own life, his little dog Toto took off with the suicide note. The whole community has been turned upside down. When the dog turns up outside Rangi’s window he knows he must help. He must adopt her - whangai - and he must protect and hide her. But as he feeds her, his toto (blood) begins to run deeper and darker than ever before.
Rangitoto has awoken.
The earth begins to dance, and the sky bleeds.
She’s little. She’s black. She’s a bitch.
