Some friendships are just clucking surprising

As part of Riverside Theatre's ongoing commitment to presenting work from New Zealand, Auckland Theatre Company's multi-award-winning production, Still Life with Chickens by D.F Mamea, makes its Australian premiere this August. Tickets are now on sale - 5 performances only.

Still Life with Chickens is an intimate, heart-warming, and funny play about friendship, loss, love and life.


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.

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.


Still Life with Chickens was developed with the support of Auckland Theatre Company. It will play at Lennox Theatre, Riverside Theatres on:
