An isolated Old Man and Old Woman prepare for the arrival of important guests. Ionesco’s iconic absurdist farce reinterpreted for Kiwi audiences in back to back seasons: Te Reo, Samoan, Cantonese and English. Using physical theatre, comedy and pathos, the boundaries of language will be transcended by beautiful moments of theatre and community connection.
The Cantonese version will be performed by Helene Wong and Sam Wang with direction by Hweiling Ow, new translation by Henry Liu. It will be fully in Cantonese with no subtitles but we will have a detailed synopsis / written translation available to refer to.
