“Then, at last we arrived…”

An isolated Old Man and Old Woman prepare for the arrival of important guests. Sixty-six years after it first premiered, Ionesco’s iconic absurdist farce is interpreted for Kiwi audiences as four separate versions - in Te Reo, Samoan, Cantonese and English.

Showcasing the similarities as well as the differences between the Pākeha, Māori, Samoan and Cantonese cultures, four experienced teams of theatre-makers will take over Te Pou theatre in July.

Using physical theatre, comedy and pathos, the boundaries of language will be transcended by beautiful moments of theatre and community connection.
