Still Life with Chickens (Auckland, New Zealand)
22 Jul - 31 Aug 2019
Some friendships are just clucking surprising!
When Mama discovers a mischievous chicken invading her flourishing veggie garden her first instinct is to reach for the spade. But what starts out as a skirmish over the silver beet develops into an unlikely friendship.
Award-winning playwright D.F. Mamea's slice-of-life story paints a vivid portrait of the local neighbourhood, its colourful characters and Mama's dreams for herself and her family.
Goretti Chadwick gives a tour de force performance in the role of a lifetime as she brings this glorious character to life.
"...a masterfully crafted piece of sublime simplicity that captures the heart of our humanity" (Broadway World, New Zealand)
