Auckland Theatre Company in association with Auckland Arts Festival presents
Still Life with Chickens
By D.F. Mamea
8 March - 14 March, Mangere Arts Centre
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 (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.
