This 1983 Kaleidoscope documentary describes the evolution of Bruce Mason's groundbreaking 1956 play, The pohutukawa tree. Richard Campion, director of its first production in Wellington, theatre critic Ralph McAllister and actor Charles Walker describe how both they and the audience responded to the play. For most, it was the first time they had seen a powerful and realistic depiction of their society on stage.
