Still Life with Chickens

Date: 1 Jul 2019

When Mama discovers a mischievous chicken invading her beloved veggie garden her first instinct is to shoo the interloper from her silverbeet.

But what starts out as a backyard turf war develops into an unlikely friendship.

Mama comes to realise there is a lot more to life than just waiting for it to end.

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 stars alongside puppeteer and vocal performer Haanz Fa’avae-Jackson.
