The South Afreakins is written and performed by Robyn Paterson, from Impi Productions and presented at the Southland Arts Festival.

Helene and Gordon are stuck. Stuck in their same armchairs on their same farm and in their same rut. One longs to get out and experience everything the world and retirement has to offer, while the other won’t leave his milk tart.

When they finally leave everything they’ve ever known and emigrate to New Zealand, the result is hilarious and heartbreaking as they discover it’s hard work to find “home.” Sure, the grass is always greener, but home is always home.

Robyn Paterson’s acclaimed, funny and poignant solo show explores displacement and immigration and the discovery that home does not only exist within places, but within people.

“Paterson takes us on this journey with wit and emotional insight.” - The Sunday Express, UK

Double bill shows: See The South Afreakins and Shot Bro on the same night for $48.
