Still Life with Chickens - Tauranga Arts Festival

Produced by Auckland Theatre Company

Pacific News: Still Life with Chickens


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.
