Unfortunately this show has had to be postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

We hope to arrange a new date for this show once we are able to re-open the venue, but we do not have a date yet.

A heart-breaking and hilarious show about country, loss and the impossible search for home.

Helene and Gordon are stuck in South Africa and in their same rut.

One longs to get out and experience everything retirement has to offer, while one won’t leave his milk tart.

When they finally immigrate to New Zealand, the result is heart-breaking and hilarious as they discover it’s hard work to find “home”.

Impi Theatre Company presents a dark comedic solo show about leaving everything you’ve ever known and starting over again.

Duration : Approximately 80 minutes with no interval

Recommended age : 14+ (moderate language and themes some may find distressing)

Paterson takes us on this journey with wit and emotional insight.

★★★★★ Sunday Express

[Paterson] has the audience right in the palm of her hands.

★★★★★ The Mortal Fool

The South Afreakins is a duologue performed as a monologue, a two-hander expertly performed by a single actor. And, my word, it’s really very good indeed.

★★★★★ Bouquets & Brickbats

The idea of an elderly white South African couple making a new home in New Zealand offers an unexpected angle on migration. There’s a razor-sharp edge to the comic observations in Robyn Paterson’s snappy solo show about the older generations losing their roots ... achingly poignant

★★★★ The Stage

A tour de force performance
