“Dennison once again brings his signature warmth, humour, and pathos for a singular and deeply affecting performance.” – Marya E. Gates,


“It’s an engaging and affecting story of confusion, anger, bravery, and rebellion, but also of love, freedom, and joy.” – Kat Halstead, Common Sense Media


“A laugh-out-loud-funny drama that adeptly delves into complicated issues of allyship and racial identity.” – Victor Stiff, That Shelf


In 1981 New Zealand, 17-year-old Josh Waaka (Julian Dennison) navigates rugby-centric St Gilbert’s College. Amidst the Springboks’ tour and national protests, he embraces acting and his Māori heritage. Josh faces a choice: conform or stand up for family, future, and identity. “Uproar” is his heartwarming journey against a nation’s struggle.
