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 silverbeet develops into an unlikely friendship.

Auckland Theatre Company’s theatre production of “Still Life with Chickens” by D.F. Mamea paints a vivid portrait of the local neighbourhood, its colourful characters, and Mama’s dreams for herself and her family. Goretti Chadwick (Pani and Pani) 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.

“E, leai, I’m not doing an encore. I’m an old woman, you stupid chicken. The last time I sang and danced like that…oi, ‘ta fia ola e. My wedding day. I was so young and beautiful, and so was Papa.”
