Tusitala and the house of spirits was written by Paul Simei-Barton and directed by his wife, Justine Simei-Barton. A dreamlike and often hilarious story of English writer Robert Louis Stevenson's involvement in Samoan politics, it premiered at the Wellington theatre Taki Rua in 1996. This is the poster from that production, showing the cast members, with Sylvia Rands at left and Martyn Sanderson (as Stevenson) at right.
