Event Details

Cian Parker has teamed up with theatre director and dramaturg Laura Haughey, who brings her unique physical approach to storytelling in this original, devised piece of work at The Herald Theatre on 19-21 June 2021. Written and performed by Parker, with live music by Andy Duggan, Sorry For Your Loss is the story of a young woman who is unexpectedly introduced to a father and family she never knew she had.

Suddenly forced to navigate the opinions of her mother, her elderly neighbour, and her classmates she eventually must reclaim her whakapapa.

Parker’s acclaimed autobiographical show about growing up on the mean streets of Kirikiriroa Hamilton in the 1990s is a heartfelt, hilarious, and utterly charming tribute to the power of wāhine toa.

This event is not recommended for children under age 3.
Children aged 14 and under must be accompanied by a caregiver who attends the event with the child.
Duration: 45 minutes
