The South Afreakins - Arts On Tour Performance Whitianga

What to Expect

Creative Mercury Bay and Arts on Tour brings you The South Afreakins - a dark comedy show about love, loss and companionship, with a dash of political commentary sprinkled in for good measure. Performed solely by the talented Robyn Paterson.
Billed as a dark-comedy, the strength of this piece lies in its drama with the few comedic moments perfectly placed to support this.

The Storyline
Helene and Gordon are stuck. Stuck in their same armchairs, on their same farm and in the same rut. 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.

Please email Creative Mercury Bay for ticket information and details.
