Nelson Arts Festival presents MAUNGATAPU

Nelson Arts Festival presents MAUNGATAPU

Northpark Productions

The Nelson Arts Festival is proud to present the World Premiere of last year's Theatre in Development project.

Murder, mayhem, love, loyalty, betrayal, honour, comradeship, justice, injustice and Nelson… this story has it all.


In 1866, the 'Burgess-Kelly Gang' murdered five men on the Maungatapu track, near Nelson, in New Zealand's most infamous case of bush-ranging. The gang's subsequent arrest, trial and hangings set the whole colony aflame with a mixture of morbid curiosity and righteous indignation.

Maungatapu delves into the relationships between gang members Burgess, Kelly, Levy and Sullivan as they plot and carry out the murders, are arrested, tried, then executed.

From Burgess' remarkable death row 'confession', to Sullivan's 'betrayal' of the others in return for a pardon, where does the truth lie?

"For brevity, succinctness, and concentration, it [Burgess's confession] is perhaps without its peer in the literature of murder." MARK TWAIN
