Abstract: 
This paper analyses the process of creating and presenting a piece of bi-cultural theatre with young people held in protective care and detention in New Zealand. The author reports on work with young people in community theatre and with women in prisons using a process called 'Theatre Marae'. The drama process is perceived as being therapeutic or healing in a post-colonial context in which indigenous Maori people are gaining redress for past hurts and wrongdoing by the crown.
