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.

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.

“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.”

Still Life with Chickens won the Adam NZ play award (2017) and the Playmarket Best Play by a Pasifika Playwright (2017).Still Life with Chickens was developed with the support of Auckland Theatre Company. 

Suitable for years ten and up.
