Now that we are in something of an aftermath of the #MeToo movement, it seems like interest has ebbed a bit, but I think we can all agree the movement’s work is far from done. In dressed., a co-production between friends Lydia Higginson, Josie Dale-Jones, Olivia Norris...

For those who have seen it, it is difficult to watch “Baby Face” and not be reminded of a certain 70s TV advert for “Love’s Baby Soft”, which boasted the toe-curling slogan “innocence is sexier than you think”.  Katy Dye’s touring solo show, which performed at last yea...

With New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern currently on maternity leave, becoming the first elected leader ever to do so, this seems a fitting time for Elisabeth Easther's "Seed" - a modern play of interweaving stories on the difficulties of getting pregnant, sta...

In the lobby of Centrepoint theatre tonight, a blackboard was up asking who our female icon was. Though the usual suspects of "Frieda Kahlo", "Emma Watson" and "Mum" were all present and correct, I'm sure kiwi and legendary suffragist Kate Sheppard holds a similar plac...

Bravo. Well done. Top job. Zoe Coombs Marr, Ursula Martinez, Adrienne Truscott, I would like to hand in my notice. I am defeated. Their collaborative show, “Wild Bore”, takes a look at the negative reviews the three artists have received over the years, and some especi...

Hmm, I wonder if I started featuring topless production photos, whether my male audience will increase. Only really attractive actresses, mind. All slim and gorgeous with a pristine complexion and all the right assets, and we can always alter the imperfect. What harm c...

Ah, subtlety. What a thing it is. This devised production from Pandorum Theatre Company bids us on what turns out to be an adventure into a mystical land of modern male culture. Promising both cultural commentary and crass comedy, the key point I wondered going in was...
