My Own Darling

New Zealand/Aotearoa

Take a ride on the South side, where poetry and theatre collide.

This Auckland Theatre Company work showcases a new genre of performance, where an invisible city reveals deep secrets through intensely personal stories.

This must-see show is part road movie, part love song.

“Auckland city is actually the sixth character in this show – she’s kind of my muse and my lover,” says TED Talk sensation Grace Taylor, the creator of My Own Darling.

Grace, also an award-winning poet, mixes Samoan culture with touches of humour and is accompanied by a pumping soundtrack from Anonymouz.

She storms the stage along with rising star Gaby Solomona.

Together, they celebrate the people you might otherwise pass by – a girl in blood-red jeans, a bro from the mounga, a neighbourhood mama, and K-Road characters.

It’s edgy, urban and it’s now.

To the point: Multi-character road movie/taps into rap/new genre/personal stories/Samoan culture and humour/edgy, urban, now.
