BATS THEATRE, 1 KENT TERRACE, WELLINGTON
After burning down her step-family’s beloved fish ‘n’ chip shop, Chip races to her treasured houseboat – one of two things left by her mother. A stolen treasure and a birthday later, Chip is faced with the law, her sister, and most terrifyingly, her Aunty.
Chip is then forced to care for something for the first time in her life. Can she cope with responsibility? The Māori in a white family, the Pākehā among Māori. When forced to confront her poor decision making, how much anger can come from this lack of belonging?
After a successful reading in the 2018 Breaking Ground Festival, Maia Diamond, Moana Ete and Vanessa Immink have teamed up to bring Fishin Chip to the 2019 Kia Mau Festival.
