New Zealand playwright D.F. Mamea’s slice-of-life story “Still Life with Chickens” won the Adam play award in 2017. It tells an intimate, heart-warming, and funny story about friendship, loss, love, and life: 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 silverbeet develops into an unlikely friendship. The play paints a vivid portrait of the local neighborhood, its colorful characters, and Mama’s dreams for herself and her family.
