Fresh Off the Page: Geoff, The Chicken
Presented by Proudly Asian Theatre
Fresh Off the Page returns in 2023 with contemporary Asian plays hot off the press, performed in a series of free play readings by Pōneke-based artists. Written by Asian practitioners, read by Asian practitioners, directed by Asian practitioners.
For the FINAL play-reading of the year we feature Joanna Cho's Geoff, the Chicken:
Geoff, the Chicken is a comedic play about a chicken and two human friends who try to hunt it down. What ensues is a comedic series of mishaps as the two friends realise they may have gotten more than they bargained for with Geoff.
Joanna Cho / 조은선 is the author of People Person, published by Te Herenga Waka University Press, which was shortlisted for the 2023 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards. She was born in Korea, moved to Tāmaki Makaurau at the age of two, and currently lives in Ōtaki.
Proudly Asian Theatre delivers contemporary performance works driven by Asian artists in Aotearoa.
Their works are heart-fuelled and stereotype-shattering, with collaboration, innovation and whānau at the fore of their creation.
