Auckland Arts Festival: Sorry For Your Loss

PG

What kind of father can't remember his own daughter’s surname, anyway?

Exciting up-and-coming theatre maker Cian Gardner ponders this and other curly life questions in a play about growing up with a mostly-not-there dad.

She tells her personal, bittersweet story – and pays tribute to the strength of wahine toa – by jumping between multiple characters and generations, in a dynamic physical performance set to live music. Keeping it real and relatable, Sorry For Your Loss is a sad, funny, honest-as one-woman show you won't forget in a hurry, suitable for all audiences.

“A beautiful heartfelt piece that defies you not to be moved… With a wonderfully light touch, Gardner finds her way into our hearts with both her words and her performance.” — Victor Rodger

“Cian is a powerful and nuanced performer, and has crafted a delicate and deeply affecting show. It’s a beautiful piece of theatre.” — Jo Randerson

“A moving, deftly told story… a very special type of theatre experience.” — Stuff
