A hilarious and heartbreaking show about country, loss, and the impossible search for home.

Helene and Gordon are stuck. 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, they discover just how hard it is to find ‘home’.

New Zealander Robyn Paterson draws on her parents’ story, bringing them both to life in this darkly comedic solo show about leaving everything you’ve ever known and starting over again.

“[Paterson] has the audience right in the palm of her hands." - The Mortal Fool

“Razor-sharp [and] achingly poignant.” - The Stage

“Paterson takes us on this journey with wit and emotional insight." - Sunday Express

“A rare accomplishment that qualifies as a must see!" - The Spy In the Stalls
