Still Life with Chickens

Still Life with Chickens 


Some friendships are just clucking surprising!

When Mama, an ageing Samoan woman, discovers a mischievous chicken invading her flourishing veggie plot, her first instinct is to reach for the spade – and the pot. But what starts out as a skirmish over the silverbeet develops into an unlikely friendship.

Award-winning playwright David Fa'auliuli 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 as she brings this glorious character to life beside feathered co-star Moa, masterfully puppeteered by Haanz Fa’avae-Jackson.

Winner of 2017's Adam NZ Play Award and Playmarket Best Play by a Pasifika Playwright, Still Life with Chickens is an intimate, heart-warming, and funny play about friendship, loss, love, and life. Suitable for audiences aged 10 to 110.
