A new play, Pitcairn, explores the island’s unique and complex history. Four of the five characters are based on real people. John Adams is the last surviving mutineer, a rough-as-guts sailor visited by the hounds of Hell. Teehuteatuaono (a Taihitian woman) was tricked onto the Bounty and has been plotting ever since. Six generations later, handsome Andrew Young is a charming tour guide, but is he all he seems? And what happened between 1948 and 1952 to provoke an ordinary New Zealand woman (married to the new school teacher) to take on the British Government?
