The South Afreakins (Arts on Tour NZ)
Fri 01 Nov

Helene and Gordon are stuck. Stuck in their same armchairs, on their same farm and in the same rut. One longs to get out and experience everything the world and retirement has to offer, while the other won’t leave his milk tart. When they finally leave everything they’ve ever known and immigrate to New Zealand, the result is hilarious and heartbreaking as they discover it’s hard work to find “home”. Sure, the grass is always greener, but home is always home. The South Afreakins is about displacement, immigration and finding that home cannot only exist within places, but within people. The South Afreakins is a dark comedy performed solely by Robyn Paterson. “Razor-sharp and achingly poignant” – The Stage “[Paterson] has the audience right in the palm of her hands.” – The Mortal Fool “Paterson takes us on this journey with wit and emotional insight.” – Sunday Express
