Mockingbird explores the often neglected subject of mental health and in particular, post-natal depression through the use of humour, mask and music. Based on a true story, Le Coq trained Lisa Brickell brings to life a family of characters from different generations. She is accompanied onstage by actor and musician Sarah Macombee. Mockingbird is directed by Lecoq trained Ruth Dudding and acclaimed Commedia dell’Arte and Clowning expert Giovanni Fusetti from Italy. A hopeful and entertaining show – Mockingbird will resonate in your thoughts long after you leave the theatre.
‘A great solo show called Mockingbird by Lisa Brickell with cool sounds and live music by Sarah Macombee of Macombee & the Absolute Truth. It’s the story of four generations of women, whakapapa & belonging. Brickell is wonderfully expressive with cheeky fluidity, and the show is as riveting as it is entertaining.’
