It’s about friendship, loss, love and life. The intimate, heartwarming and funny play Still Life with Chickens is coming to Artworks for one weekend only.
Mama is proud of her flourishing veggie garden. So when she discovers a mischievous chicken enjoying her greens, her first instinct is to reach for the spade.
But what starts out as a skirmish over the silverbeet develops into an unlikely friendship, as Mama opens up to the chicken about the struggles with her old man, her palagi daughter-in-law, her immigrant neighbours, and the grandchildren she rarely sees, and learns that there is more to life than waiting for death.
