Fringe 30yr - Cyan Logo L

She did it all on her own; the gift of strength from one woman to another


“Fringe’s one-woman show Sorry For Your Loss moving, deftly told” – stuff.co.nz

A one-woman show written and performed by the exciting up-and coming artist, Cian Gardner.

It is her story of growing up and explores the effects of having a sometimes-there mostly-not Dad, and an-always there-doing-her-best Mum. This story is about the strength of a woman; and the gift of strength from one woman to another.

Director Laura Haughey brings her unique physical approach to the storytelling in this original, devised piece of work.

‘Brave and engaging. Captivating!’ — Deborah Nudds, Festival organiser of Toi Wāhine Festival

“We saw ‘Sorry for Your Loss’ in Kirikiriroa last year and loved it. Cian is a powerful and nuanced performer, and has crafted a delicate and deeply affecting show. It’s a beautiful piece of theatre.” – Jo Randerson

“There is nothing there that doesn’t need to be, the sparse set is enriched by the live score that accompanies the piece and is a fitting background for the actor’s talents to shine. And she does. Cian is a natural and talented performer who transfixes the audience, with her honest approach to telling her story and her ability to physically inhabit the characters in it. Sorry For Your Loss is funny and sad, and ultimately very satisfying.” – Deborah Nudds @ The Meteor

“A beautiful heartfelt piece that defies you not to be moved…With a wonderfully light touch, Gardner finds her way into our hearts with both her words and her performance.” – Victor Rodger
