The South Afreakins

The South Afreakins, from Impi Theatre Company is written and performed by Robyn Paterson and presented at the Southland Arts Festival.

Helene and Gordon are stuck. Stuck in their same armchairs on their same farm and in their 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 emigrate to New Zealand, the result is hilarious and heartbreaking as they discover its hard work to find home.  Sure, the grass is always greener, but home is always home.
Robyn Paterson’s acclaimed, funny and poignant solo show explores displacement and immigration and the discovery that home does not only exist within places, but within people.

Paterson takes us on this journey with wit and emotional insight. - The Sunday Express, UK
