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.

A comedy unafraid of the uncomfortable truths of life, award-winning playwright David Fa’auliuli Mamea’s slice-of-life story tells of an ageing Samoan woman’s valiant fight against loneliness. It vividly portrays, through her perspective, the local neighbourhood, its colourful characters, and Mama’s dreams for herself and her family.

Goretti Chadwick (Pani and Pani) gives a magnificent, empathetic performance as she brings this glorious character to life, while Haanz Fa’avae-Jackson’s convincing chicken-language skills have won over all the critics.

Sublimely simple, masterfully crafted, this is a beautiful, beguiling and very funny play.

Written by D.F. Mamea; directed by Fasitua Amosa; performed by Goretti Chadwick, with puppetry by Haanz Fa’avae-Jackson.
