Fresh off the boat, 1995

Oscar Kightley (left) and Dave Fane were among the founding members of the Christchurch theatre company Pacific Underground, formed in 1992 to provide more professional opportunities for Pacific Island actors. The company's first major production, Fresh off the boat, co-written by Kightley and Simon Small, was an instant success. This photo is of the 1995 Downstage production. The play later toured to Australia and Samoa.
