Still Life With Chickens (Aotearoa)
Presented by Auckland Theatre Company and PANNZ
By D.F. Mamea

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 silverbeet 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.

An intimate, heart-warming, and funny play about friendship, loss, love and life.

Sponsored by the Acorn Foundation.  Supported by Creative New Zealand.
