Mama’s proud of her flourishing veggie garden. So when she discovers a stray chicken enjoying her greens, her first instinct is to reach for the spade. But what starts as an all out war develops into a grudging friendship, as Mama opens up to the chicken about her struggles with her old man, her palagi daughter-in-law, her immigrant neighbours and the grandchildren she rarely sees. Through this unlikely friendship, Mama learns there’s more to life than waiting for death. A beautiful, beguiling and very funny play about loneliness and the resilience of communities.
