“Then, at last we arrived…”

An isolated Old Man and Old Woman prepare for the arrival of important guests.

Sixty-six years after it first premiered, Ionesco’s iconic absurdist farce is interpreted for Kiwi audiences as four separate versions - in Te Reo, Samoan, Cantonese and English.

Showcasing the similarities as well as the differences between the Pākeha, Māori, Samoan and Cantonese cultures, four experienced teams of theatre makers will take over Te Pou theatre in July.

Using physical theatre, comedy and pathos, the boundaries of language will be transcended by beautiful moments of theatre and community connection.

Featuring: Adam Rohe, Chris Martin, Amber Curreen, Antonio Te Maioha, Acacia O'Conner, Tainui Tukiwaho, Edward Peni, Aleni Tufuga, Renee Liang, Hweiling Ow, Helene Wong, Sam Wang.
