Helene and Gordon are stuck.
Stuck in South Africa and in their same rut. One longs to get out and experience everything retirement has to offer, while one won’t leave his milk tart. When they finally immigrate to New Zealand, the result is heartbreaking and hilarious as they discover it’s hard work to find "home". A dark comedic solo show about leaving everything you've ever known and starting over again.
