Still Life with Chickens is an intimate, heart-warming and funny play about life, love, loss and the fact that 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 silver beet, develops into an unlikely friendship.

Award-winning playwright D.F. Mamea’s slice-of-life story paints a vivid portrait of the local neighbourhood, it’s colourful characters, and Mama’s dreams for herself and her family. Actor Goretti Chadwick gives a captivating performance in the role of a lifetime, as she brings this glorious character to life.
