That Bloody Woman

Wednesday 11th-Thursday 12th October 2017

Time to rock the vote!

Radical, riotous and bursting with wit, this bold musical experience about one of NZ’s greatest heroes is a red-hot hit that pulsates with passion.

Our favourite daughter, suffragist, activist and cyclist Kate Sheppard is transformed from the face on the $10 note into a feminist firebrand, raising hell in this punk rock opera.

"Bursting with wit, verve and righteously rocking tunes” (THE PRESS), 'That Bloody Woman' presents NZ's founding mother as 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.

"Kate’s back: a kickass role model for equality and people power. May her message continue to roll out across the country." METRO MAGAZINE

“…a fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled, honest, sassy and poignant celebration of a world first.” THEATRESCENES

Warning: contains loud music, coarse language and feminist women riding bicycles!
