26 September – 8 October
New Zealand’s smash hit rock musical That Bloody Woman is back. Our favourite daughter, suffragist, activist and cyclist Kate Sheppard is transformed from the face on the $10 note into a feminist firebrand raising hell and rocking out. Fresh from sell out seasons at Auckland Theatre Company and The Court Theatre, Kate takes the show on the road in 2017.
“Bursting with wit, verve and righteously rocking tunes”, That Bloody Woman
presents New Zealand’s founding mother like you’ve never seen her before; loud, proud and in your face. Leading the charge to win women the vote, Kate takes on the patriarchy, public opinion and even Prime Minister Richard ‘King Dick’ Seddon.
“…an easy cause to sign up for. Like Hamilton for the US, it’s the show New Zealand didn’t know it needed.”
– Metro Magazine
“…compassionate, smart, funny and gloriously entertaining.” – The Press
