Private detectives Morgan Reid and Ian Sheff attempt to solve a series of arsons across Wellington city. Their inability to cooperate forces the two to rely on outside help, unintentionally constructing a band of misfits.

Innovative in its fusion of theatre, musical theatre and hip-hop music presented through a detective drama with Aotearoa flavour, Flames is a one-of-a-kind show by Te Kura o Toi Whakaari: New Zealand Drama School graduates Roy Iro and Reon Bell, that celebrates the whakapapa of Hip-Hop culture in Aotearoa.

this hip-hop musical is smart, sassy and exhilarating
