Warm, passionate and very funny, Tzigane (Romanian for Gypsy) introduces us to a Greek-Romanian New Zealand family whose situation (separated from each other by distance and expectations) speaks to many of us. The New Zealand born children return to the family home for a reunion, where a secret is gradually revealed.
Winner of the Chapman Tripp Award for Best New New Zealand Play 1996.
“Tzigane is a tragi-comedy about belonging and not belonging, about follies and failings. Given the universal nature of the family gestalt, there is no way you won’t identify.” -New Zealand Listener.
