Fresh from their multi award-winning success at festivals across the world, the all-singing, all-dancing, all-fighting Fringe Wives Club make their New Zealand debut at BATS Theatre in Wellington this March, as part of NZ Fringe.

Part explosive comedy cabaret, part interactive edu-tainment: their show Glittery Clittery is a sequin-clad, champagne-fuelled, cosmic feminist extravaganza guaranteed to blow minds and pants. The Fringe Wives are ready to smash the patriarchy with the full force of their combined, unquestionable talent and an empowering live soundtrack.

Fiercely funny, Glittery Clittery is a high-energy comedy party, busting with original live music, anarchic audience games, epic dance moves and DIY glamour + activism (a.k.a. #GLAMtivism). Brandishing weapons of entertainment, politically-charged passion and personal stories, the Wives dissect what it means to be a feminist today, undermining the fear that indoctrinates bigotry, sexism and homophobia, and skewering the lack of education that continues to shroud the female body.

This timely and uncompromising feminist call-to-arms is created and performed by physical comedy queen Tessa Waters (Winner: Best Comedy Weekly Award, Adelaide Fringe 2017, Womanz/Over Promises/Fully Sik), musical comedy powerhouse Victoria Falconer (Winner: London Cabaret Award 2015, EastEnd Cabaret/Yeti's Demon Dive Bar) and acclaimed comedian and storyteller Rowena Hutson (Winner: Most Outstanding Comedy Melbourne Fringe 2015, Strong Female Character).

Last year, Fringe Wives Club picked up the prestigious Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award at the Edinburgh Fringe. They scooped a Moosehead Award and a nomination for Best Newcomer at the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. They were nominated for Best Cabaret at both Perth Fringe World and Melbourne Fringe in 2017, before being awarded Best Cabaret at Adelaide Fringe in 2018.

Glittery Clittery is on at BATS Theatre, 10pm, 19-23 March. More information and tickets available at
