Helene and Gordon are stuck.
Stuck in their arm chairs, stuck on their farm, and stuck in their rut.
Helene is determined to leave everything behind and start again in the sheep filled hills of New Zealand. Gordon’s dream is to stay right where he is. When they finally immigrate to New Zealand, the result is heart-breaking and hilarious as they discover it’s hard work to find “home.”
Sharply observed and wittingly composed, The South Afreakins is a dark comedic solo show about the lengths we go to in order to find our identity, the limits of what we would give up for the ones we love the most and the investments we are forced to make to find out where home actually is.
After a sell-out season at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and a one-night-only engagement at Creative Waikato in 2016, The South Afreakins returns to Hamilton for two nights at The Meteor Theatre!
